Steve Cronin is about to experience a few deer-in-the-headlights moments. The Galaxy goalkeeper, who has played only half a dozen Major League Soccer games in his first three seasons, suddenly finds himself as the starter. On a team that boasts such vastly experienced international players as David Beckham, Landon Donovan, Abel Xavier, Celestine Babayaro and Carlos Ruiz, the last line of defense is a relatively wet-behind-the-ears 24-year-old.

TORONTO -- Second-half goals by defender Julius James and forward Jeff Cunningham carried Toronto FC to a 2-0 victory over the Galaxy on Saturday, which played without midfielder David Beckham. Both teams had depleted rosters because of injuries and international callups, most notably England's Beckham. After only one shot on goal in the first half, a Sean Franklin foul on Cunningham set up the game's first goal in the 49th minute.

Los Angeles, using substitutes and second-stringers, lost to the two-time defending Japanese League champions, 2-0, in an international friendly Wednesday night at the Home Depot Center. The Galaxy's patchwork lineup, prompted by injuries, absences and Galaxy Coach Steve Sampson's desire to give backups playing time, came unraveled in the second half.
