COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (AP) - Hendry Thomas scored in the 41st minute and the Colorado Rapids shut out the Los Angeles Galaxy 2-0 Saturday.
Dillon Powers added a goal and an assist for Colorado (9-7-7). The Rapids beat the Galaxy for the first time in seven meetings and had been 0-5-1 over that span.
Colorado is unbeaten, 4-0-2 in its past six games after going through a 0-4-1 stretch.
Thomas found space between two defenders when Powers lined up for a corner kick. Powers put the ball right on the head of Thomas, whose header sailed past goalkeeper Carlo Cudicini.
Los Angeles (10-9-3) was looking for its fifth win in seven matches. The Galaxy were shut out for the sixth time this season in falling to 1-6-0 in their past seven road games.
