CARSON, Calif. - Landon Donovan broke the Major League Soccer goal record Sunday night, scoring his 135th and 136th regular-season goals in the Los Angeles Galaxy's 4-1 victory over the Philadelphia Union.

Playing for the first time since being cut from the U.S. World Cup team, Donovan broke a tie with Jeff Cunningham in the 49th minute with his first goal of the season, then added another in the 81st. Donovan was replaced by Brazilian forward Samuel a minute later, departing to a standing ovation from the crowd of 21,010.

Donovan, also the U.S. national team goal leader with 57 in 156 games, has played 311 regular-season games in 15 MLS seasons. The Jamaican-born Cunningham, a former U.S. national team player, played in 365 games over 14 seasons with Columbus, Colorado, Real Salt Lake, Toronto FC and FC Dallas. He last played in MLS in 2011.

Donovan also holds the MLS playoff record with 22 goals. He's No. 2 on the MLS assists list with 120, including one on Leonardo's second-minute header Sunday.

Robbie Keane also scored for Los Angeles (4-3-3). Maurice Edu, also one of seven players trimmed from the 30-man World Cup preliminary roster, scored for Philadelphia (2-7-5).

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Khari Stephenson broke a nearly yearlong scoring drought with two goals to help San Jose beat Houston to improve to 3-4-4.

Stephenson, who last scored June 8 for Real Salt Lake, converted off a rare indirect free kick from deep inside Houston's penalty area in the first half, then converted from the penalty spot in the second half.

Atiba Harris knocked in the rebound of his own header off the post for the clincher.

Houston dropped to 5-7-2.
