CARSON, Calif., Oct. 2 (UPI) -- An own-goal by Real Salt Lake's Nat Borchers in the 72nd minute Saturday handed the Los Angeles Galaxy a 2-1 victory.

The Galaxy (18-3-10) trailed 1-0 when they began a second-half comeback, sparked by Chad Barrett's tally in the 59th.

David Beckham found Barrett with a long pass and the Galaxy forward beat Salt Lake defender Jamison Olave, then flicked a shot over goalkeeper Nick Rimando and across the goal line.

Thirteen minutes later, Los Angeles defender Todd Dunivant put a ball to the front of the net where Borchers deflected it into his own net and the Galaxy hung on for their fourth straight win.

Fabian Espindola had put RSL (15-10-6) in front in the 45th minute.
