Houston and New England couldn't take advantage of Philadelphia's 1-0 loss at San Jose and still sit in sixth and seventh place two points behind the Union, which played with a man advantage for the last 33 minutes after Rafael Baca's red card.

Saturday ...

Despite playing without four players away on national team duty, Sporting KC put away Columbus with three goals in the first 55 minutes for a 3-0 win.

The big surprise in the Western Conference was the Rapids' 1-0 win at the LA Galaxy on former Galaxy forward Edson Buddle's 98th MLS goal.

A late own goal gave Seattle a 2-1 win for its seventh win in its last eight games. The Sounders are now only two points behind Western Conference leader Real Salt Lake with two games in hand.

Portland, which had won only one of its previous seven games, feasted on Toronto mistakes for a 4-0 win that kept it in top five ahead of FC Dallas, which has taken seven points in its last three games after going 11 games without a win.
