First-choice Galaxy goalkeeper Brian Rowe (groin) has joined starters Sebastian Lletget (out until end of regular season), Robbie Rogers (out for season), Baggio Husdic (out up to eight weeks), and Daniel Steres (hamstring), on the long-term injury list although midfielder Jermaine Jones is getting close to returning after missing most of May with injury.

Rowe suffered the injury in training, Galaxy officials said.

It’s another ghastly blow for a club that has clawed its way back to Western Conference mid-table respectability with a string of road wins after a terrible run that had some fans suggesting coach Curt Onalfo needed to be replaced.

After the club’s longest road trip of the year, the Galaxy return home to face D.C. United at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at StubHub Center.

Galaxy wrap: Another three points picked up on the road

For the third consecutive game, the Galaxy went on the road and scored another road victory.

Saturday night, thanks to a pair of goals from Giovani dos Santos the Galaxy took down in-state rivals San Jose, 4-2 in the latest edition of the Cali Clasico.

The Galaxy improved to 5-5-2, now with 17 points, moving them into sixth place in the Western Conference. The victory also gave the Galaxy their fourth on the road, tying their total of road victories from last year.

Galaxy coach Curt Onalfo: “Nothing phases us. We’ve dealt with a lot of adversity early on and that’s made us a better group and a better team. I like how we grew as the game progressed because obviously I was a little concerned that we conceded twice in the first half, I think we just locked it up and had a very good second half.”

What’s next: The Galaxy conclude a stretch of four consecutive road games, June 3 at D.C. United.

100 Percent Soccer column: Has the Galaxy’s new-found frugality hurt the club’s MLS results?

The Galaxy is giving away 12,500 retro T-shirts at Saturday’s 7:30 p.m. game against the Chicago Fire at StubHub Center in Carson.

I suspect they’ll be looking for a little of the Galaxy of old if the club hopes to get a crucial victory — and coach Curt Onalfo wants to keep his job.
