It’s the sight Dynamo fans have been eagerly anticipating since news of the blockbuster transfer broke last year: Erick “Cubo” Torres on the field in Houston.

The striker took part in his first training session as a Dynamo designated player on Friday ahead of the team’s road game against Real Salt Lake on Saturday (9 p.m. CT; ROOT SPORTS) and said he’s ready to open a new chapter of his career.

It had been 12 games since the Houston Dynamo pitched a shutout. The defense that started the season hot had cooled off and found it tough to keep teams from hitting the back of the net, many times with Houston having a hand in their opponent’s success.

But on Friday night against former head coach Dominic Kinnear’s San Jose Earthquakes they found the magic touch in the back to notch a 2-0 road win at Avaya Stadium.

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- The Houston Dynamo’s road woes finally came to an end in the city they once called home.

Ricardo Clark scored early and Will Bruin added the capper late as the Dynamo beat the San Jose Earthquakes 2-0 Friday night. It was Houston’s first victory away from home in exactly two months, ending an 0-3-1 run outside of BBVA Compass Stadium for the Dynamo (6-7-6).

Houston Dynamo have to keep concentration for full 90 minutes for result against San Jose Earthquakes

He’s played the full 90 minutes in the Dynamo’s past 12 MLS matches, but everyone’s been seeing a little less of Raúl Rodríguez lately.

Caps, umbrellas, sunscreen, covering up or not going out during the day: people cope with the Texas summer heat in different ways. For the Spanish defender, who joined this year, the solution was to take a razor to his head—resulting in a buzzcut that makes him look like an army recruit or a Bald Is Beautiful participant.

HOUSTON – Patrick Nyarko made the most of his return to MLS action after 10 months on the shelf.

In his first league match since suffering an ACL injury Oct. 14 last season, the Chicago Fire attacker netted the late equalizer to give his team a 1-1 draw Friday night against hosts Houston Dynamo at BBVA Compass Stadium.

It negated the Dynamo opener in the second half from former Fire midfielder Alex.

Getting a handle on the Houston Dynamo this season has been a chore.

One week they’re scoring four goals and the next two weeks they’re getting shut out. Their defense was one of the best in the league through the first seven games and now has gone 10 games without a clean sheet.

That process has Houston with 20 points from 17 games, six out of the playoff race at the halfway point of the season.

It's been said that it's not the start but the finish that matters in sports, but on Friday night the Houston Dynamo’s start put them in a hole they could not crawl out of by the end of a 2-0 loss to Texas rivals FC Dallas at Toyota Stadium. Within the first 45 minutes Houston were behind the eight-ball thanks in large part due to the speed of Fabian Castillo and an inability to take control of the ball.
