Torres’ header beat goalkeeper Clint Irwin after Chivas didn’t put a shot on goal in the first half. Chavez, who made two appearances for Colorado last season, broke free on a breakaway to beat Irwin in the 67th minute and again off a cross in the 76th minute.

Galaxy 1, Timbers 1 • In Portland, Ore., the Timbers’ Diego Valeri scored in the final minute of stoppage time, shortly after the Galaxy’s Robbie Keane’s header two minutes into stoppage time appeared to give the Galaxy the win.

Revolution 5, Sounders FC 0 • In Foxborough, Mass., Diego Fagundez scored two first-half goals as New England routed Western Conference-leading Seattle.
