Romain Alessandrini scored twice as the Galaxy ended their four-match winless run with a 3-1 victory at Red Bull Arena.

Giovani dos Santos was on target from the penalty spot, while Galaxy right back Bradley Diallo was shown a second yellow card in the 90th minute.

Daniel Royer pulled a goal back in stoppage time but it could not prevent the Red Bulls’ 13-month home unbeaten streak from ending — a regular-season run dating back to April 2016.

The Galaxy are seventh in the Western Conference — two points outside of the playoff places — while the Red Bulls are fifth in the East.

The Portland Timbers were held to a 1-1 draw by Atlanta United in Portland on Sunday.

Liam Ridgewell’s 50th-minute strike canceled out Julian Gressel’s opener for Atlanta at Providence Park.

The Timbers almost claimed maximum points in stoppage time, but David Guzman’s effort hit the post.

Meanwhile, New York City FC earned a 1-1 draw at FC Dallas thanks to a Thomas McNamara strike, which negated Kellyn Acosta’s opener.
