Alan Pulido scored his third goal in his last three starts, Daniel Salloi added his 11th goal of the season and Sporting Kansas City beat FC Dallas 2-0 on Saturday night.

Pulido ran onto a through ball by Gadi Kinda before side-netting a first-touch shot from the corner of the 6-yard box to open the scoring in the 12th minute. Johnny Russell played a cross from the right flank to the center of the area, where Salloi outdueled defender Nkosi Tafari for possession before blasting a shot into the top of the net to make it 2-0 in the 63rd.

Dallas (5-8-6) had its three-game unbeaten streak -- which started with a 2-1 win at Sporting KC on July 31 --- snapped.

Kansas City (11-4-4) leads the Western Conference with 37 points, two more than the LA Galaxy, who beat Minnesota United 1-0 earlier Saturday.
