CARSON, Calif. (AP) — Nick Lima had two goals, Andrés Ríos added a goal and an assist, and the San Jose Earthquakes beat the LA Galaxy 4-0 on Wednesday night.

Carlos Fierro flicked an arcing right-footer from the right side to the far post where Ríos tapped it to Lima for the one-touch finish from the center of the area in the 44th minute.

Ríos made a run from the top of the area and Fierro led Ríos with a bending entry for a finish from point-blank range to make it 2-0 in the 52nd. Tommy Thompson scored his first goal of the season in the 76th minute and Lima capped the scoring in stoppage time.
