The Galaxy beat the Columbus Crew, 1-0, in its first qualifying match, then defeated the New York Red Bulls, 3-1, to earn a spot in the 40-team field. Tonight's winner will travel to face the winner of the Carolina RailHawks-Chicago Fire contest in the quarterfinals, which are scheduled to begin Aug. 7.
