The Galaxy hit Cincy with a pair of early goals, forcing the hosts to chase the game early. Emmanuel Boateng got his first of the season, a clinical finish into the bottom corner from just inside the 18-yard box.
Three minutes later, Favio Alvarez reacted quickest to a poor clearance and fired into the bottom corner to double the Galaxy's lead.
Sebastian Lletget was fit to start, returning from injury quicker than anticipated.
- THE BIG PICTURE: The Galaxy recovered from a big Open Cup defeat to the Portland Timbers to earn three points in MLS play. Cincy, well, are in a rut and continue to drop further away from the playoff line.
- MOMENT OF THE MATCH: Minutes after taking the lead, Alvarez doubled the visitors' advantage.
- MAN OF THE MATCH: Dangerous from the moment he stepped on the field, Emmanuel Boateng caused more problems than the Cincy backline could solve.

- LA: Saturday, June 29 at San Jose Earthquakes (10 pm ET | MLS LIVE on ESPN+ in US, DAZN in Canada)
