WASHINGTON -- Fabian Espindola scored his team-leading seventh goal of the season to lead D. Reggie Sanders Jersey .C. United to a 1-0 victory over Sporting Kansas City on Saturday. Bill Hamid made five saves to preserve his third shutout and D.C.s fifth this season. Uniteds victory was their first over Sporting since a 2-1 win on May 5, 2010, with Kansas City winning six matches and drawing one since. Sporting (5-5-4) had its winless streak stretched to five matches as United (6-4-3) climbed past them into second place in the Eastern Conference. Already without American World Cup call-ups Matt Besler and Graham Zusi, Kansas City lost defender Aurelien Collin in the eighth minute with an apparent recurrence of a right hamstring injury. Collin previously missed two matches with the same injury earlier this month, and was replaced Saturday by 17-year-old Erik Palmer-Brown, the leagues youngest current player. United also lost defender Chris Korb to an apparent leg injury in the 34th minute. But forward Eddie Johnson was allowed to start after the league waived his red card from last weeks match at New England and the resulting suspension. D.C. substitute Alex Caskey was sent off in the fourth minute of second-half stoppage time for his late, dangerous challenge on Kansas Citys Kevin Ellis. Ellis was also involved in a post-match scrum, with Sporting coach Peter Vermes having to briefly restrain the defender. Espindola scored in the 28th minute on his long, left-footed strike from outside the penalty area that appeared to be a cross aimed at Johnson. Instead, it sailed beyond stranded Kansas City goalkeeper Eric Kronberg and into the net for Espindolas third goal in three matches. Kansas City had chances to tie after halftime. In the 63rd minute, Jacob Peterson reached Benny Feilhabers cross but headed it wide of Hamids right post. Then Hamid made a reaction save on his left post to turn away substitute Soony Saads whistling shot in the 78th minute. Fake Diamondbacks Jerseys .

LOS ANGELES -- Just as the Dodgers were wrapping up their most successful month since moving to Los Angeles in 1958, the NL West leaders acquired infielder Michael Young from Philadelphia to bolster a potential playoff run. Henry Ellenson Jersey . Adrian Gonzalez hit a tying single in the seventh inning and pinch-hitter Mark Ellis singled home the go-ahead run in the eighth for a 2-1 victory over the San Diego Padres on Saturday night. The Dodgers also received cash from the Phillies in exchange for minor league left-hander Rob Rasmussen. Young waived his no-trade clause in a deal that was completed 10-15 minutes before the 9 p.m. PDT deadline to make him eligible for the playoffs with the Dodgers, according to general manager Ned Colletti. "Someone that brings obviously World Series experience, one of the classier people in the game, a winner," Colletti said. "He can play first or third, can come off the bench. Someone we feel has a lot left." Los Angeles manager Don Mattingly said Young could spell Juan Uribe at third base or Gonzalez at first. "We like the guys that we have, but Michael just adds to it," he said. Mattingly spoke to Uribe about the deal. "I dont feel bad," he said. "I dont feel mad. Im good. Hes a good player. He can help the team, too." Young batted .276 with eight home runs and 42 RBIs in 126 games with the Phillies this season, including seven hits in his last 10 at-bats before the trade. He has made 101 starts at third base and 17 at first. The 36-year-old veteran is a .300 career hitter with 185 homers and 1,026 RBIs. "He makes us stronger," Mattingly said. Young was acquired by the Phillies last December from Texas. He is from nearby Covina. The Rangers paid a portion of Youngs salary to Philadelphia, which is passing it on to the Dodgers, Colletti said. The rest of Youngs new teammates were enthusiastic about his impending arrival. "One of the better human beings around, not just baseball players," said Skip Schumaker, who attended UC Santa Barbara after Young did and knows him from alumni games. "Hes going to fit right in. Anybody in the big leagues would love to have him." Gonzalez and Young were teammates in Texas. "Another guy who knows how to play the game, a great guy in the clubhouse," Gonzalez said. "He knows how to prepare and be ready for at-bats." The Dodgers ended August with a 23-6 record, their most wins in a month since 1958. The club record of 25 was set in July 1947 and equaled in August 1953, when the team played in Brooklyn. "Weve stayed healthy and our bullpen has done very well," Gonzalez said. "You cant win without pitching. Days like today, we won with our pitching and defence." Brian Wilson (1-0) came on in relief to earn the victory -- his first since joining the Dodgers last week. Kenley Jansen pitched the ninth for his 23rd save in 25 chances. Nick Vincent (3-2) took the loss, allowing two hits on nine pitches in the eighth after relieving starter Andrew Cashner. Dodgers starter Chris Capuano allowed one run and eight hits in seven innings, struck out seven and walked one. "There were a number of 3-2 and 2-0 changeups, and when a pitcher does that and throws it in the strike zone, its pretty tough," Padres manager Bud Black said. "And he had enough velocity to keep us honest. We got some hits off him, but we just couldnt string them together and get the big blow." Schumaker led off the eighth with a double and was sacrificed to third by Tim Federowicz. Schumaker scored on Ellis single to centre, one of the Dodgers 13 hits, equaling their amount in Fridays series-opening win. The Dodgers tied it at 1 on Gonzalezs RBI single with one out in the seventh. Pinch-hitter Jerry Hairston Jr. and Carl Crawford opened the inning with singles. Cashner intentionally walked Andre Ethier to load the bases before Uribe grounded out to end the inning. Ronny Cedeno homered with two outs in the fourth for the Padres. Cashner gave up one run and 10 hits while striking out seven and walking three. The Padres, who had 10 hits, have lost seven of nine. NOTES: The Dodgers transferred injured pitcher Josh Beckett to the 60-day DL to make room for Young. ... Dodgers OF Matt Kemp was set to be the DH again at Class-A Rancho Cucamonga on Saturday and Sunday. Kemp has been on the DL since July 24 with a sprained left ankle. "His timing doesnt sound very good yet," Mattingly said. "Its hard to jump in at 94-95 (mph) when you havent seen it in a while. Matt wants to be swinging the ball good when he comes back." ... The Padres activated OF Kyle Blanks from the 15-day DL and optioned RHP Anthony Bass to Triple-A Tucson. Blanks was 1 for 11 with a run scored and a walk in four rehab games. ... Padres 3B Chase Headley, who left Fridays game in the fifth inning with back stiffness, didnt show much improvement overnight so he didnt play. Brooklyn Nets Gear .
