CARSON, Calif. (AP) - Edson Buddle scored a goal late in the 75th minute as the Colorado Rapids beat the Los Angeles Galaxy 1-0 on Saturday night.

Buddle kicked a shot aiming to the upper-left corner after Vicente Sanchez stripped Galaxy defender Todd Dunivant of the ball on Los Angeles' left wing. The win kept Colorado (11-8-9) in fourth place in the Western Conference.

The Galaxy (13-10-4) lost at home for the first time since early May, dropping from second to third in the West - two points behind second-place Seattle.

Los Angeles Galaxy was without their four starters: forwards Robbie Keane and Landon Donovan, defender Omar Gonzalez and goalkeeper Jaime Penedo they are away with their national teams for World Cup qualifying. Colorado was without Gabriel Torres, Penedo's Panama teammate.
