CARSON, Calif. -- Robbie Keane scored twice goals and set up Landon Donovan's 132nd MLS goal as the Los Angeles Galaxy beat the San Jose Earthquakes 3-0 on Saturday night.

Keane, who has 12 goals this season, sent Donovan streaking alone into San Jose's box to give Los Angeles a lead in the 26th minute. Keane then converted a penalty kick in the 43rd and scored on a volley in the 67th.

Donovan, playing his final game with the Galaxy before joining the U.S. national team for two World Cup qualifiers, scored his eighth goal of the campaign and moved within two goals of MLS career leader Jeff Cunningham's total and one behind Jaime Moreno's.

The Galaxy (13-9-4) strengthened their hold on second place in the Western Conference, five points behind Real Salt Lake. San Jose (9-10-7) is in eighth, five points out of a playoff berth.
