SANDY, Utah — Mike Magee and Charlie Rugg scored early in the first half, and the Galaxy coasted to a 2-0 victory over Real Salt Lake on Saturday night. Brian Rowe became the first goalkeeper to earn a shutout in his MLS debut for the Galaxy (4-1-2) since Brian Perk in a 0-0 draw against Seattle on July 4, 2011. Magee scored on a header in the sixth minute. Juninho fed him a cross off a free kick into the center of the box and Magee put a perfect touch on the pass as he headed it inside the right post.

When: 5 PDT. Where: Red Bull Arena, Harrison, N.J. On the air: TV: ESPN2, ESPN Deportes; Radio: 1330. Records: Galaxy 18-3-10, Red Bulls 8-7-16. Record vs. Red Bulls: 0-1-0. Update: This match, originally scheduled for Aug. 28, was postponed because of Hurricane Irene. And that isn't going to help the Galaxy in Tuesday's game because it will be without leading scorer Landon Donovan, who stayed home to have a mild quadriceps strain treated and examined.

The Galaxy doubled the number of fit goalkeepers on its roster from one to two a little more than a week ago when Donovan Ricketts returned from his long spell on the shelf because of a broken arm. Two would be better than one. Ricketts missed more than two months, and the game in which he was injured, on June 25 at San Jose, certainly qualifies as the most memorable for the Galaxy this interesting season. This was because the replacement for Ricketts, Josh Saunders, was red-carded in the 43rd minute.

The Galaxy hadn't even left the field after Sunday's 3-0 playoff victory over the Seattle Sounders before the PA announcer informed the sellout crowd that tickets to next month's MLS Cup final at the Home Depot Center would soon go on sale. The Galaxy has a long way to go before it can think about playing in Major League Soccer's title game, much less playing it at home. But it certainly looked like a championship team in the first game of the Western Conference final, wrapping two goals from Robbie Keane around a second-half score from Mike Magee to take a commanding lead in the series.

Some of Major League Soccer's most decorated players were at Red Bull Arena on Sunday. David Beckham was the most influential figure in the Galaxy's 1-0, playoff-opening victory over the New York Red Bulls, creating several opportunities with his long-range passes and assisting on Mike Magee's 15th-minute goal. Robbie Keane and Landon Donovan returned from injuries and narrowly missed adding to the top-seeded Galaxy's advantage in the two-game, total-goals series that concludes Thursday at the Home Depot Center.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- When the Galaxy won the MLS Cup last year it gave David Beckham league titles in three countries, making him something of an expert on championships. So with the Galaxy 90 minutes away from the off-season entering Wednesday's Western Conference semifinal with the San Jose Earthquakes, Beckham was speaking from experience when he insisted everything that had happened in the previous eight months would mean nothing if the team didn't repeat. "There's no season that can be a success if you don't win any silverware at the end of it," he said.

PHOENIX -- The Home Depot Center is getting a new name. The 125-acre multi-sport complex on the campus of Cal State Dominguez Hills in Carson will be known as the StubHub Center starting on on June 1, when the naming rights transfer from the chain of home improvement stores to one of the nation biggest ticketing companies. The $150-million complex, designed and built by Anschutz Entertainment Group, has a 27,000-seat main stadium, a 2,450-seat velodrome, an 8,000-seat tennis stadium and an outdoor track facility.
