PALO ALTO, Calif. (AP) -- Chris Wondolowski scored his MLS-leading 14th goal to cap a wild comeback and San Jose beat Los Angeles.

Wondolowski broke away from his marker and deftly redirected a 61st-minute corner kick from Marin Chavez to complete San Jose's rally from a 3-1, first-half deficit.

Steven Lenhart, Victor Bernardez and Sam Cronin also scored for the Earthquakes (11-3-3), who maintained their hold on the league's best record with their third consecutive win.

CREDITOR: MLS SNAP JUDGMENTS

David Beckham and Landon Donovan sandwiched scores around an own goal by San Jose defender Jason Hernandez in the space of 10 minutes to put Los Angeles (6-9-2) ahead by two goals, but the Galaxy had their three-game winning streak broken when they couldn't hold that lead.

Toronto FC 1, Red Bulls 1

TORONTO -- Danny Koevermans scored and Toronto FC earned a 1-1 tie with the New York Red Bulls on Saturday night.

Both goals came in the first six minutes of a wide-open game.

Toronto (2-10-3) is 1-1-3 under Paul Mariner, who succeeded Aron Winter as head coach.

Star striker Thierry Henry started for the Red Bulls (9-4-4), after coming off the bench last week as he battled a calf strain. Mexican international Rafa Marquez (thigh) did not dress.

Jan Gunnar Solli tapped in a cross from Brandon Barklage on the right in the fourth minute after the Red Bulls strikers moved to the ball to the flank from the center.

Dynamo 2, Union 1

HOUSTON -- Brian Ching scored on a penalty kick in the 83rd minute, and the Houston Dynamo held on for a win over the Philadelphia Union.

Houston (6-5-5, 23 points) won for the second time in its past four games, while Philadelphia (3-9-2, 11 points) has lost three of the past four and six of its past eight games.

Ching knocked the penalty kick just under the crossbar inside the near post and in. Ching drew the penalty kick in the 81st minute after being taken down from behind by Philadelphia's Gabriel Farfan in the box.

Keon Daniel tied the game at 1-1 in the 46th minute, taking a pass from Brian Carroll in the center of the field, turning and shooting from 25 yards out into the left net.

Brad Davis put Houston ahead 1-0 in the 20th minute after getting a pass from Macoumba Kandji and hitting from 14 yards out on the left box just inside the far post.

Honduran national team member Oscar Boniek Garcia also got an assist on the goal, his first assist in his first game with the Dynamo since being acquired via transfer in early June.

The win extends Houston's unbeaten streak at home to 15 games, and the Dynamo haven't lost at home since a 2-0 loss to Columbus on June 18, 2011.

Crew 2, Real SL 0

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- y Tchani scored for the second straight game and Eddie Gaven also tallied and the Columbus Crew defeated Real Salt Lake.

The Crew (6-5-4) are 4-1-3 in the past eight games while RSL (10-6-2) lost a third consecutive game for the first time since July 2007.

Tchani was 12 yards off goal to convert a pass by Emilio Renteria in the 16th minute.

Gaven doubled the lead in the 44th off a corner kick that began with Chris Birchall. Josh Williams took the ball and passed to Gaven for a shot off the crossbar and in.

The match was delayed an hour because electricity was out at Crew Stadium until Saturday afternoon following Friday's storms.

Rapids 3, Timbers 0

COMMERCE, Colo. -- Jaime Castrillon and Conor Casey scored four minutes apart in the first half and the Colorado Rapids prevailed.

It was Casey's first goal of the year. Colorado (7-8-1) snapped a two-game losing streak with the win.

Jamie Smith scored in the 89th minute to cap the scoring.

Goalkeeper Matt Pickens earned his fifth shutout of the season. Pickens is the franchise leader with 27 shutouts and has 37 in his career.

Portland (4-7-4) had few chances against Pickens in falling to 0-5-2 on the road this year. The Timbers were shut out for the sixth time this year.

The second-year team has lost all three meetings to Colorado. The Timbers have scored only once in those three games.

Portland was without midfielder Kalif Alhassan, who suffered a strained left hamstring in the Timbers' game against Seattle on June 24.

DC United 3, Impact 0

WASHINGTON -- Chris Pontius scored at the 45-minute mark of the first half and Robbie Russell and Hamdi Salihi added second-half goals and DC United blanked the Montreal Impact.

United (10-5-3) took sole possession of first place in the Eastern Conference with 33 points as the New York Red Bulls (9-4-4) played to a 1-1 draw against Toronto.

United have won 6 of 8 overall and are unbeaten in their past nine home games.

The expansion Impact (5-10-3) managed just one shot on goal. Montreal has dropped 5 of 7 and is 1-8-1 in road games.

The teams appeared headed to halftime scoreless when Pontius took a pass from Dwayne De Rosario about 35 yards out.

Pontius started to his right just outside the box, quickly cut back to his left around a defender and beat goalkeeper Evan Bush to the far side for his ninth goal of the season.

It was De Rosario's league-leading 10th assist.

Revolution 2, Sounders 2

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Diego Fagundez headed home a cross from Fernando Cardenas in the fourth and final minute of stoppage time and the New England Revolution garnered a draw.

The 17-year old Fagundez's first goal of the season extended an unbeaten streak to four matches (2-0-2) for New England (5-7-4).

Eddie Johnson headed home a pair of goals within a 13-minute span during the first half for Seattle (7-5-5), which had extended its winless streak to eight matches (0-4-4).

Johnson headed home a cross out of the left side from Mauro Rosales in the 23rd minute to tie the match at 1-1 and followed that by scoring his seventh goal of the season in the 36th minute, finishing off a cross from Marc Burch.
