Sporting Kansas City moved top of the MLS Eastern Conference after they beat Toronto FC 3-0 and the Montreal Impact were hammered 4-0 by the New York Red Bulls.
Soony Saad's brace helped Kansas to victory over ten-man Toronto, who lost Reggie Lambe to a straight red card 11 minutes after half-time for a foul on Saad before Claudio Bieler completed the scoring. Aurelien Collin had a fourth disallowed for offside.
New York joined the Impact on 31 points, two behind Kansas, after goals in the first 16 minutes from Eric Alexander and Thierry Henry set them on their way to a comfortable win at Red Bull Arena. Tim Cahill made it 3-0 and Peguy Luyindula added a late penalty.
The Philadelphia Union, who beat Chivas USA last night, are a point further back while the Houston Dynamo moved to 29 with a 2-1 win over the New England Revolution tonight.
Adam Moffat was credited with both Dynamo goals, though the second rebounded off a post and in off goalkeeper Bobby Shuttleworth. Saer Sene scored New England's goal but substitute Dimitry Imbongo's dismissal, two minutes after the winning goal, ended their hopes of a comeback.
Real Salt Lake remained four points clear in the Western Conference after beating FC Dallas 3-0. Javier Morales, Ned Grabavoy and Olmes Garcia scored for Salt Lake, who maintained their margin over second-placed Portland.
The Timbers saw off the Los Angeles Galaxy 2-1 after Andrew Jean-Baptiste's headed winner in stoppage time. Ryan Johnson had earlier cancelled out the Galaxy's opener, which came from Marcelo Sarvas.
Walter Martinez scored the only goal as the San Jose Earthquakes won 1-0 against the Seattle Sounders, who had Osvaldo Alonso sent off late on.
