CARSON, Calif. (AP) -- David Beckham and Juninho scored to help the Los Angeles Galaxy rally for a 2-1 victory over FC Dallas on Sunday night.
The Galaxy (18-7-5) will face Seattle in the playoffs after winning the Supporters' Shield for finishing with the league's best record.
Atiba Harris scored for Dallas (12-4-14), which will play defending MLS Cup champion Real Salt Lake.
Juninho broke a 1-1 tie in the 46th minute. Dallas defender Zach Loyd headed Landon Donovan's aerial pass to Juninho, who volleyed it into the net from 18 yards.
Harris gave Dallas a 1-0 lead in the 22nd minute with a 5-yard header off Eric Alexander's left-wing cross. Alexander began the play by intercepting Galaxy defender Sean Franklin's attempted clearance. Crew 3, Union 1
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Columbus midfielder Eddie Gaven set up a penalty, assisted on a goal and made two saves to help the Crew beat Philadelphia.
Gaven took over for goalkeeper William Hesmer in the 86th minute after Hesmer had to leave the match after a collision with Union (8-15-7) defender Danny Califf.
The goalie broke his right shoulder on the play and will be out for the playoffs. Andy Gruenebaum will take over when the Crew play Colorado this week.
The Crew had already used their three substitutes so Gaven was forced to play the goal.
The Union's Sebastien Le Toux made it 3-1 in the 87th minute with a strike from 20 yards that went through Gaven's gloves.
