Home teams rule, so far

[BY THE NUMBERS] With Chicago's 4-0 win over New England and Los Angeles' 2-0 victory over San Jose, home teams remain undefeated in the MLS season's first eight games. The Los Angeles Galaxy's attendance of 27,000 was the highest of the season so far.

Chicago got two goals from Polish newcomer Tomasz Frankowski and one a apiece from Chad Barrett and Cuauhtemoc Blanco against the Revs, which played a man down for 83 minutes after Jeff Larentowicz's ejection for a lunging cleats-up tackle.
