SANDY, Utah (AP) — Kaka scored twice in Orlando City's 4-1 win over Didier Drogba and his 10-man Montreal on Wednesday, while Juan Manuel Martinez scored in stoppage time to help Real Salt Lake maintain its unbeaten record at home this season with a 3-3 draw against Los Angeles.

Martinez raced up the sideline and angled into the area before firing a deflected shot under goalkeeper Brian Rowe to complete the comeback four minutes into stoppage time.

The draw left Real Salt Lake and Los Angeles level on second spot in the Western Conference — seven points behind Dallas.

Giovani dos Santos scored twice and assisted on Jeff Larentowicz's goal to help Los Angeles build a 3-1 lead by the 64th minute. But three minutes later, Joao Plata scored to pull RSL to 3-2.

RSL midfielder Kyle Beckerman made his 400th MLS appearance to become the first non-goalkeeper in league history to accomplish the feat.

At Montreal, Brek Shea and Carlos Rivas scored to back up Kaka in Orlando City's lopsided win.

Drogba scored from a free kick 1:01 into the match, the second-fastest goal in Montreal's MLS history, but it was mostly downhill after that for the Impact.

Montreal was reduced to 10 men when goalkeeper Evan Bush was shown a straight red card in the 51st minute after taking down Rivas in the box. Kaka scored against backup goalkeeper Eric Kronberg from the resulting penalty.
