[MLS NAMES & NUMBERS] Landon Donovan finished off a nice sequence of counterattack passing to send the Galaxy past Chicago. Seattle ended Columbus' home unbeaten streak. A couple of midseason signings scored their first goals. And San Jose made sure it wouldn't finish rock bottom in 2009. For MLS's weekend highlights. ...

LANDON DONOVAN. His 11th goal of the season gave the Los Angeles Galaxy a 1-0 win over Chicago in front of a home crowd of 21,679 that sends the Galaxy to the playoffs after missing the postseason the last three years.



24. Seattle ended defending champion Columbus Crew's 24-game league-record home unbeaten streak with a 1-0 win on a goal by Roger Levesque. The Crew's Guillermo Barros Schelotto had a chance to keep the streak intact, but shot wide on an 82nd minute penalty kick - his first MLS miss from the spot after eight conversions. The Crew's run included 22 regular-season and two playoff games.

LUIS ANGEL LANDIN. The Houston Dynamo's first Designated Player -- the Mexican striker signed in August -- scored his first MLS goal in a 1-1 tie with Kansas City that clinched a playoff spot for the Dynamo.

16. Colorado's Conor Casey and FC Dallas' Jeff Cunningham share the league in scoring. Cunningham scored his 16th in a 1-0 win over New England on Wednesday. And the Revs were also Casey's victim on Saturday when his 58th minute penalty kick equalized Kheli Dube first-half goal in the 1-1 game in front of 16,535 at the Rapids' Dick's Sporting Goods Park. It was the third time in four games that Colorado salvaged a 1-1 tie thanks to a late Casey penalty kick.

JESUS PADILLA. The 22-year-old Mexican-American who is on loan from sister club Guadalajara scored his first MLS goal for Chivas USA, which he joined in August, in a 2-0 win at D.C. United. Padilla scored after Chivas USA took the lead on an own goal by Milos Kocic and before United's Ben Olsen was ejected for retaliation.

26. In a battle between the league's two worst teams, San Jose extended its unbeaten streak to four games with a 1-0 win over the New York Red Bulls on a Ryan Johnson penalty kick. The Red Bulls' loss extended its record road-game winless streak to 26 games - it last won away in May 2008 - and assured the Red Bulls of finishing with the worst record of 2009.
