Former Galaxy striker and LA native Herculez Gomez scores twice for Pachuca

Hitman Herc has struck:

MEXICO CITY (AP) — American forward Herculez Gomez entered as a second-half substitute and scored his first two goals of the Clausura season in Pachuca’s 3-0 win over Chiapas on Saturday night.

Gomez came in in the 62nd minute and scored in the 70th and 78th to give Pachuca a 2-0 lead.

A member of last year’s U.S. World Cup team, he signed with Pachuca last May and scored one goal in 14 appearances during the Apertura season.

Last year, he scored 10 goals during the Clausura season and became the first American to win or share the Mexican league’s regular-season scoring title.

Tweeted Herc:

Thanks for never loosing faith. I know this is just the beginning for us. Feels great to score but it feels even better to win at home.
