MLS Regular Season
It’s been a long wait for Servando Carrasco. After coming to the Houston Dynamo from the Seattle Sounders in a September 2013 trade for Adam Moffat, Carrasco has bided his time and been a good soldier while seeing only occasional duty in league play, all of it off the bench.
On Saturday, Carrasco finally got his chance to start against Chivas USA, and he made the most of it.

Dynamo forward Giles Barnes wants to use last weekend's performance against Chivas USA as a template for an important three-game homestand that begins with the visit of the Columbus Crew to BBVA Compass Stadium on Wednesday night (7 p.m. CT; TICKETS).
Giles Barnes has the ability to propel soccer balls into a net at very high speeds using his feet. This is an ideal trait in a soccer player, as well as in a candidate for the MLSsoccer.com Goal of the Week. As it turns out, Giles is both of these things thanks to his laser goal against Chivas USA last weekend. So please, vote for him here.
Winning cures everything, and for the first time in seven games the Houston Dynamo experienced that cure in a 4-1 win over Chivas USA on Saturday at StubHub Center, even if things did not start the way they planned.
CARSON, Calif. -- The month of May is already proving to be far kinder to the Houston Dynamo than April was.
After stumbling through the previous month by grabbing only two points from five matches, the Dynamo dissected the Chivas USA defense Saturday night for a dominant 4-1 victory at StubHub Center, their first on the road this year.
