PASADENA, Calif. (AP) _ Sasha Victorine, Alexi Lalas and Brian Mullan scored to give the Los Angeles Galaxy a 3-0 victory over the Dallas Burn on Saturday night.

The Galaxy (6-5-2) moved into a tie for second place in the Western Division with the Burn (5-3-5), six points behind San Jose.

Victorine broke a scoreless tie in the 58th minute when he took a crossing pass from Alejandro Moreno and headed the ball in from six yards out.

Lalas made it 2-0 in the 69th minute by scoring inside the left post. A double-teamed Victorine set up the play with a back-heel pass to Gavin Glinton, who crossed the ball from the left wing to Lalas.

Glinton’s breakaway run enabled Mullan to score in the 81st minute. Dallas goalkeeper Matt Jordan tipped Glinton’s shot to Mullan, who converted from four yards away.

Los Angeles goalkeeper Kevin Hartman, in just his fourth start of the season, made four saves for his 33rd career shutout.
