Washington, DC (Sports Network) - A pair of struggling Eastern Conference rivals clash on Saturday as D.C. United welcomes Toronto FC to RFK Stadium. United enters the match riding a two-match losing streak in league play and sits in 10th place in the East with just 13 points from 24 games this season. Last time out, D.C. went toe-to-toe with playoff contenders Montreal Impact put fell by a 2-1 count at Saputo Stadium. D.C. hung around for most of the opening 45 minutes, but Montreal found a break through two minutes before the break when Justin Mapp crossed low to the penalty spot from the right flank, and Felipes dummy fooled Uniteds center backs, leaving the ball for Marco Di Vaio to curl a right-footed strike into the top corner of Bill Hamids net. The home side drew level nine minutes from time when promising young striker Conor Doyle when he pounced on a Luis Silva through ball on the outside left and beat Montreal goalkeeper Troy Perkins at the far post. But it was Di Vaio that put the Impact back in front when he curled a beauty past a powerless Hamid just two minutes later to secure three points for his side. Additionally, United head coach Ben Olsen will not be on the touchline as he will serve a suspension for an altercation with Montreal head coach Marco Schallibaum. "I hate to make this about me because we all have learned a lot from an organizational standpoint," Olsen said. "Players, coaches, maybe front office, fans, we all have gone through this together. And that is what Im proud of is that were still hanging in there and were still trying to get better each day and we found ourselves in a final, still." Toronto. meanwhile, is coming off a 2-0 defeat to the Columbus Crew at Crew Stadium last week and sit in ninth place in the Eastern Conference with 20 points from 24 matches. Toronto fell behind last time out 19 minutes into the match as Chad Barson found Bernardo Anor with a cross, and he fired a shot into Toronto goalkeeper Joe Bendik. The rebound popped out to Federico Higuain and he slotted it home. Higuain completed his brace in the 67th minute when he floated a perfectly placed chip over the Toronto goalkeeper. "Our defenders were not really treating the ball with respect and keeping it," Toronto head coach Ryan Nelsen said of his teams effort. "When we did keep it for like four or five passes, generally something half decent happened. We werent at the office. Im not going to single out anybody but I think everybody, from one to eleven, wasnt that great." In 16 all-time meetings between the sides, United holds a 10-4-2 advantage, including a 4-2-2 mark at home.

Brian Giontas agent Steve Bartlett told La Presse on Tuesday that the Montreal Canadiens want to keep their captain - an unrestricted free agent on July 1 - in the fold, while sources tell the paper that the two sides will start talks this week. http://www.blackhawksshophockey.com/red-5-david-rundblad-womens-jersey/ . Torres calmly stroked a 51st-minute spot kick down the middle with goalkeeper Romel Quinonez diving right to convert a penalty earned by Javi Martinez. Spain controlled play at the Sanchez Pizjuan but found it hard to convert against a well-organized Bolivian team before Iniesta charged forward to curl around Quinonez in the 84th to seal victory.

The left-hander threw eight strong innings and Josh Hamilton hit a two-run home run as the Los Angeles Angels beat the Houston Astros 5-1 on Saturday night. Skaggs (1-0) allowed one run - none earned - on four hits with five strikeouts. Skaggs was acquired in the off-season from Arizona in a trade that sent outfielder Mark Trumbo to the Diamondbacks. "I was excited for my first game with the Angels," Skaggs said. "I have pitched in the big leagues before. I took that mindset that I have been here before. The team needs to get in the win column again. A lot of different things to stay relaxed out there." Skaggs became one of just 13 pitchers in Angels history to go at least eight innings while allowing no earned runs in first start for the team and the first since Shawn Broskie on May 1, 1995, at Toronto. Skaggs, who posted a 2-3 record with 5.12 ERA with the Diamondbacks last year, said he threw a two-seam fastball Saturday night - a pitch he had not thrown in spring training. "The thing is that I havent thrown the two-seamer at all, and today, I broke it out," Skaggs said. "I threw it 90 per cent of the time. Thats why you saw all those 90-91 instead of 93-94. They kept swinging at it, so why not continue to throw it and get outs early in the count?" Skaggs said the changeup and curveball were also good and everything was clicking. Angels manager Mike Scioscia said all of Skaggs pitches were working but it started with his ability to command the fastball. "He had a great two-seamer going and once he was able to get that into spots everything else opened up for him." Scioscia said. "He threw some terrific change-ups, some really good curveballs. Theyve got some right-handed hitters that are really strong hitters and youve got to make some pitches to them. He did and got through it well." Hamilton followed David Freeses run-scoring single with his second homer in as many days, extending the lead to 4-1 in the fifth off Dallas Keuchel. Hamilton had three hits and is noow hitting .dddddddddddd352 against the Astros with 16 home runs and 41 RBI. "I dont think its necessarily the team," Hamilton said. "I love playing at this park. Before it was a rivalry thing - Texas and Houston. Maybe that helped a little bit. I cant pinpoint one thing." Keuchel (0-1) allowed four runs on eight hits with five strikeouts over five innings. "If youre not on your A-game every pitch, thats what happens," Keuchel said. "I think that kind of took the wind out of our sails in the fifth." Kole Calhoun extended the lead to 5-1 on a run-scoring single in the eighth off Chad Qualls. Houston, which dropped its third straight, opened a 1-0 lead as Jose Altuve scored on an error by third baseman John McDonald in the first, but that lead quickly vanished as Howie Kendrick knotted the score at one with a run-scoring double in the second. Houston manager Bo Porter said the Astros need to get things going offensively after being outscored 16-2 in the first two games of the series. "He really had his breaking ball going, but at the same time, I think we helped him a little bit by expanding our strike zone," Porter said of Skaggs. "He took advantage of it. Offensively, definitely need to get things going and score some runs." Notes: Houston outfielder Dexter Fowler missed his second straight game Saturday after spending Friday night at Methodist Hospital due to a stomach virus. He was released from the hospital Saturday night and could play Sunday, Porter said postgame. . Astros catcher Jason Castro was out of the lineup for the second consecutive game Saturday with a bruised right foot. . Lance Berkman and Roy Oswalt signed one-day contracts before the game and officially retired as Astros. . The Astros outrighted right-handed pitcher Chia-Jen Lo off the 40-man roster. He cleared waivers Saturday and will remain with Triple A Oklahoma City. . Houston will send right-handed pitcher Scott Feldman (0-1) to the mound Sunday as the Angels will counter with right-hander Jered Weaver (0-1).
