First-place FC Dallas played to a draw as did Colorado and Real Salt Lake suffered a 1-0 defeat to Houston.
With a victory today against Sporting Kansas City, the Galaxy can move to within two points of first place FC Dallas, which is huge considering they will meet twice next month.
Sporting Kansas City begins the day in the sixth and final playoff spot in the West with 39 points, four ahead of Seattle.
