It’s an overcast, if humid South Bay evening here in Carson where the field looks good and the stands empty.
It looks like striker Alan Gordon found a magic lantern that made a wish come true – a third start of the season. Landon Donovan is making the rounds of television shows and won’t return until the weekend. As is customary with these games, Coach Bruce Arena gives some regulars a rest.
Here’s the Galaxy XI: Josh Saunders, Bryan Jordan, A.J. DeLaGarza, Leonardo, Alex Cazumba, Chris Klein, Jovan Kirovski, Clint Mathis, Eddie Lewis, Alan Gordon, Tristan Bowen.
On the bench is the likes of Todd Dunivant, Sean Franklin, Omar Gonzalez, Chris Birchall, Juninho and Michael Stephens.
