The LA Galaxy sent a message to the rest of MLS on Wednesday night, piecing together another comprehensive performance, grabbing a quick lead and putting away Eastern Conference leader D.C. United, more or less, before halftime.

Landon Donovan, running the attack in Robbie Keane’s absence, set up all three first-half goals as LA (12-5-7) romped to a 4-1 victory at StubHub Center to grab the No. 2 spot in the Western Conference and Supporters’ Shield standings, just two points behind Seattle.
