After three straight comebacks produced two victories and a tie, D.C. United rather quietly has climbed its way to the top of the Eastern Conference, and now sits tied with Toronto FC with a game in hand. Veterans
Houston struggled to find itself over the first month and a half of the season, but a late-April bye looks to have turned things around for the Dynamo.
The games kick off early this week when United invades Kansas City and the L.A. Galaxy seek their second straight victory when they visit Salt Lake City on Wednesday. The marquee tilt, however, takes place on Saturday when Toronto and D.C. clash in Washington for bragging rights atop the East. Elsewhere, the Revs look to turn things around in Chicago, while L.A. plays two in five days, traveling on Sunday to Seattle, where the Sounders haven't lost all season.
