Last week’s rankings in parentheses
Rank Team Comment
1 (5) Montreal Late win vs. Kansas City vaults Impact to the top, but mainly because everyone else lost.
2 (1) Sporting KC

All eyes leaguewide turn to Sporting Park on Wednesday for the MLS All-Star Game.

3 (2) Portland Has lost two of its last four games after losing just once in its first 17 of the year (7-1-9).
4 (7) NY Red Bulls Tim Cahill injury, after being on receiving end of an awful tackle, soured a dramatic win.
5 (3) Real Salt Lake

Not often you see a brilliant hat trick, like Alvaro Saborio’s, come in heartbreaking defeat.

6 (4) LA Galaxy Probably not happy Omar Gonzalez got called up but was hardly used in the Gold Cup.
7 (9) Philadelphia

Snub no more: Jack McInerney was a late All-Star addition as an injury replacement.

8 (10) Colorado Hendry Thomas escaped what should have been red card to score winner vs. Galaxy.
9 (8) FC Dallas Heads to Seattle this weekend on tailspin of an eight-game winless streak (0-3-5).
10 (6) Vancouver Wasn’t smart of Jun Marques Davidson to head butt someone right in front of the ref.
11 (12) New England

Diego Fagundez is up to seven goals, 11 for his career, and he’s just 18 years old.

17 (16) Columbus Hunt Sports Group, owners since 1996, sold team Tuesday to Precourt Sports Ventures.
18 (17) Chivas USA Erick Torres looks to be a keeper, but that might mean a recall to Chivas de Guadalajara.
19 (19) DC United New addition Luis Silva has scored two goals in two games; of course, both were losses.
