Calen Carr had not started for the Houston Dynamo in more than a month, but he made up for lost time on Wednesday night, scoring both goals in another Dynamo victory at BBVA Compass Stadium.
Carr scored two goals, set up by Will Bruin and Brad Davis, to topple Sporting Kansas City, 2-1. A Peterson Joseph red card near the end of the first half made Sporting KC's chance of escaping Houston with a point or three all but impossible.
Carr broke a 1-1 deadlock in the 79th minute, finishing off a Brad Davis pass to help the Dynamo record their third win in five matches and push Houston into fourth place in the Eastern Conference, two points behind third-place D.C. United.
Here are the match highlights:
