Galaxy Outscore Orlando City 4-2

   CARSON, Calif. (AP) -- Landon Donovan returned to the LA Galaxy as a second-half substitute Sunday night, ending his 21-month MLS retirement in their 4-2 victory over Orlando City.
 
   Donovan, the top scorer in the history of MLS and the U.S. men's national team, announced his comeback with the Galaxy three days earlier.
 
   Wearing a No. 26 jersey instead of his usual No. 10, the 34-year-old got a lengthy standing ovation  before entering in the 83rd minute of his first game since the 2014 MLS Cup final.
 
   Giovani Dos Santos scored two goals and Alan Gordon added another during a first-half barrage for the Galaxy (11-4-14), who took sole possessions second place in the Western Conference with their second straight win. Captain Robbie Keane also scored as a second-half substitute.
 
   Kevin Molino scored on a rebound in the 20th minute for Orlando City (7-8-13).
 
   Dos Santos, the Mexican star now wearing Donovan's No. 10, scored in the 35th minute on a sweet setup from Emmanuel Boateng. He banged in a penalty in the 44th minute after his incredible pass set up Gordon to be taken down in the box.
 
   Brek Shea added a goal for Orlando City on the final kick of second-half injury time.
