MLS Regular Season
Houston Dynamo at New York City FC

Yankee Stadium, New York City, New York
Luis Garrido may not be a game changer in the traditional sense.
Goalscoring isn’t in his repertoire. He may be a little rough around the edges when it comes to passing and in the attack. But the 5-foot-7 Houston Dynamo midfielder is a handful defensively, the epitome of a bulldog on the field, making him as tough an opponent as teams will face – a true destroyer in every sense of the word.
The Dynamo’s players trained at Houston Sports Park on Thursday night but would much preferred to have been nine miles north at BBVA Compass Stadium, taking on Manchester City.
The Houston Dynamo, Dash and BBVA Compass are teaming up to offer free admission to games on June 5 and 6 to Houston-area first responders as a thank you for their efforts in the community during this period of severe weather and flooding. The Dynamo host the New York Red Bulls on June 5 (8 p.m. kickoff), while the Dash take on Portland Thorns FC on June 6 at BBVA Compass Stadium (7:30 p.m. kickoff).
Stoppage time was not kind to the Houston Dynamo against the LA Galaxy, as they saw a positive result turn sour with two late critical plays -- the second of which will cause a few looks at the tape.
Down 1-0 after a stoppage-time header by never-say-die poster boy Alan Gordon, Houston subsequently looked to miss out on what replays showed was a missed penalty call. Chasing a loose ball Galaxy defender Oscar Sorto was shown a red card for a sliding tackle from behind on Dynamo defender David Horst.
CARSON, Calif. -- Robbie Keane was back on the field for the first time in seven weeks Friday night, and it made all the difference for the LA Galaxy.
Keane, who had missed the previous seven games with a groin injury, ignited an LA attack, then set up Alan Gordon for a stoppage-time header that gave the Galaxy a 1-0 triumph over the visiting Houston Dynamo, ending their five-game winless skid.
Houston Dynamo aim to end Galaxy's home unbeaten run: "We're confident we can take all three points"
From 2011 to 2013, the Houston Dynamo set Major League Soccer’s mark for home dominance.
The club strung together a 36-game home unbeaten streak across all competitions from June 2011 to May 2013, with 30 of those matches coming in the MLS regular season – the longest home unbeaten run in league history.

Back-to-back wins an emphasis for Houston Dynamo captain Brad Davis going into last Saturday's match
Before Saturday’s match against the Portland Timbers, returning captain Brad Davis pulled his team aside and had one message: let’s win back-to-back.
It’s not a novel request. After all, teams will look to string wins together and the ones that do it the most will fare best in the regular season. Thanks to two goals from Will Bruin and another from Giles Barnes, Houston pulled off the double.
Will Bruin is taking to solitude better these days. The veteran striker has found himself working as the lone center forward, and – unlike in the past – he is making the most of it.
On an island for long stretches the past two weeks, Bruin has produced, scoring three goals in back-to-back wins in his return to the starting lineup.
