LA Galaxy defeat Philadelphia Union 1-0. A corner kick by David Beckham in the 27th minute connected with Edson Buddle who headed the ball into the net for his 16th goal of the season. The win gives the Galaxy 56 points and clearly in the driver’s seat for the club’s third Supporters’ Shield - the league’s best regular season record.

NOTABLE NOTES

MLB Playoffs Day 2. If it weren’t for Roy Halladay’s no-hit postseason debut for the Philadelphia Phillies over the Cincinnati Reds, everyone would be talking about San Francisco Giants’ ace and reigning two-time Cy Young winner Tim Lincecum’s complete game shutout of the Atlanta Braves 1-0. In the nine innings pitched Lincecum only gave up two hits and a walk while striking out a Giants’ postseason record 14 batters on 119 pitches.
