CARSON, Calif., Sept. 2 (UPI) -- Juninho and David Beckham each scored Saturday and the Los Angeles Galaxy made a move in the Western Conference with a 2-0 win over Vancouver.

Juninho gave the Galaxy all the scoring they would need with a sizzling strike from 28 yards out in the 41st minute -- the Brazilian's sixth tally in five games.

Beckham logged an insurance goal with a trademark free kick score as Los Angeles (13-11-4) won for the 10th time in 15 MLS games and pulled into a tie with Seattle for second place in the Western Conference.

The Whitecaps (10-11-7), meanwhile, dropped their fourth straight.
