OAKLAND — Pablo Campos converted a penalty kick and assisted on Ryan Johnson's sixth goal of the season to lead the San Jose Earthquakes past the Galaxy, 2-1, on Saturday.
The Earthquakes (3-8-3) have seven points in their last four games after getting only five from their first 10.
Jovan Kirovski scored his first goal of the season for the Galaxy (2-3-9), which lost for the second straight time after a 10-match unbeaten streak.
Campos scored in the sixth minute after carrying the ball on a strong drive into the penalty area and going to the ground after a sweeping leg tackle by defender Greg Berhalter, drawing an immediate whistle from the referee.
Campos sent a low, skimming kick to the right of diving goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts.
The Jamaican didn't have much more of a chance on Johnson's goal in the 54th minute. Right back Chris Leitch sent a long cross into the box for Campos, who headed a pass across the goalmouth. Johnson caught up with it at the far post and knocked it in before Ricketts could close the gap.
