Galaxy 6 Club Tijuana 2
Good to know a Mexican champion B team can’t beat a preseason MLS champion side.
The Tuesday night game was notable for filthy weather, two red cards (in an exhibition, no less), assured performances by two-goal Bryan Gaul and (to a lesser extent) Leonardo as well as an assertive Robbie Keane opener. And a spirited crowd in frankly crappy weather.
Next up for the Galaxy: Friday in Santa Barbara against the Colorado Rapids.
