Thanks to a first-half stoppage-time red card to Sporting Kansas City midfielder Peterson Joseph, the Houston Dynamo took a man advantage for the second time in as many games. But that’s about where the similarities end between Wednesday night's match vs. Sporting KC and last weekend's clash with D.C. United.

It didn't take long for Calen Carr to reacquaint himself to the Houston Dynamo starting XI.

The versatile Carr was the star of the night on Wednesday, notching his first career MLS brace and, in the process, sending the crowd of 19,761 home happy with a big 2-1 win against the East’s top team in Sporting Kansas City. It was a big night for a player a week removed from a month-long hamstring injury and who featured for the first time since June 16.

Calen Carr made a splash in his return to the Houston starting XI on Wednesday night, notching the first brace of his career to push the Dynamo past first-place Sporting Kansas City 2-1 at BBVA Compass Stadium.

In his first start since June 16, the right winger was the ultimate opportunist finding the right end of service from Will Bruin and Brad Davis, players who have served as goal scorers for the Dynamo in recent weeks.

Before the season, Will Bruin wanted to score eight goals. After taking just 14 games to accomplish that feat, he set the mark at double-digits. With Sunday’s tally against D.C. United, it looks like the striker will once again need to recalibrate his expectations.
