After taking the Texas Derby 2-1 on Saturday, the Dynamo will have a quick turnaround when they take on Toronto FC Wednesday night at BBVA Compass Stadium. The Reds arrived in town Sunday evening, following their 2-0 loss to Sporting Kansas City at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park. The loss dropped Toronto's record to 1-10 on the year and 0-1 under interim head coach Paul Mariner, who took over for Aron Winter last week.

The Dynamo will have to wait longer than originally expected for their newest Designated Player, Oscar Boniek García, to join the club.

After signing with Houston on June 7, the expectation was that the Honduran winger would arrive in Houston between June 18-20, but paperwork will push that arrival date back.

The Houston Dynamo were looking to start fast on Saturday night, and after scoring just three minutes into the match, it looked like the Orange were doing just that. The subsequent 20 minutes, however, did not follow the same script.

After Will Bruin got the scoring started early, FC Dallas, who were playing without several key players including Blas Pérez and Brek Shea, employed their most prominent tool: speed. Wingers Jackson and Fabián Castillo helped Dallas take control and put the Houston defense under siege.

What a night on Saturday! I think it was our best showing overall at BBVA Compass Stadium thus far. The crowd was electric and the drama of the game played out perfectly on national TV.

You were loud and proud in support of the squad and the boys responded well. It was great to see the fan engagement - raising scarves when the team took the field, chanting the last names of the players during intros, singing the national anthem in unison, standing for corners and set pieces, doing the wave, chanting “Lets go Dynamo,” and going crazy after goals.

In every rivalry there's a player that serves as a lightning rod for extracurricular activity.

Any doubt of who that is in the Texas Derby was put to bed Saturday night when perpetual culprit Jair Benitez livened up the festivities - and paved the way for his team's 2-1 defeat to the Houston Dynamo.

On an Adam Moffat bomb, the Houston Dynamo laid claim to El Capitan for the second straight year with a 2-1 win over FC Dallas in the seventh edition of the Texas Derby Saturday night at BBVA Compass Stadium.

Besides claiming the Derby spoils, Moffat’s winner extends Dallas’ winless streak to 10, with seven losses in that span of games, while propelling Houston to 3-0-1 record at BBVA Compass Stadium.
