MLS Regular Season
They call Luis Garrido the Beast.
And the new Houston Dynamo midfielder’s play more than backs it up. The diminutive Honduran bounces around the pitch, breaking up plays and closing down opposing players at a high rate.
A confident Dynamo defense is set to face the deadliest striker in MLS as the team prepares for a road trip that will have big implications for their playoff prospects.
Houston visit the New York Red Bulls on Saturday (5 p.m. CT, NBCSN) knowing that a win would lift them within two points of their opponents, who currently occupy the fifth and final Eastern Conference postseason place. The Dynamo also have a game in hand on Mike Petke’s side.
It's crunch time. Dominic Kinnear, Will Bruin and Brad Davis get you ready for this Saturday's match on the road against the New York Red Bulls.
Will Bruin’s last goal gave his Houston Dynamo team an early lead in an eventual 3-1 win over Sporting Kansas City and a victory that’s propelled them on a five-game unbeaten streak. It was also a month ago.
Bruin suffered a right mid-foot sprain on that goalscoring play and it has cost him four games so far. But he was back on the training field on Tuesday, as the club prepares for the next in a line of playoff games that will have implications on the postseason tournament.
Eddie and Sebastian talk about the things they liked in the win over Chicago, the tough road match coming against New York, and what it'll take for the Dynamo to make the playoffs.

Relive the best moments from Sunday's win over the Chicago Fire at BBVA Compass Stadium.
Another week, another shutout, and another MLS Save of the Week nomination for Tyler Deric. This time it's for his stop on Quincy Amarikwa's acrobatic volley attempt, which Deric dove to get his fingertips on and tip around the post.
Boniek García got on the scoresheet for the second time this year and did so with class. His volley to clinch the win against Chicago on Sunday capped a pretty team move with a cross from Kofi Sarkodie and a centering header from Brad Davis, and it's earned a nomination for AT&T MLS Goal of the Week.
The Houston Dynamo’s playoff aspirations are still alive, and it’s all because they did what they do best on Sunday.
On a warmer day than expected under the Texas sun, Houston put their crossing and finishing acumen on display with two goals on balls swung in from the flanks, stretching out the Fire defense and creating space to exploit in the box.
Giles Barnes, David Horst, Tyler Deric and Brad Davis break down Sunday's win over Chicago.
