Robbie Keane scored two goals and Mike Magee added another as the Los Angeles Galaxy beat the San Jose Earthquakes 3-0 Wednesday night to complete a 3-1 aggregate victory in the teams' Western Conference semifinal series.

Alan Gordon gave San Jose hope in the 82nd minute when he put away a miss-hit shot from Justin Morrow for his first career playoff goal. But the Earthquakes could not find the equalizer they needed to force overtime.

The win kept alive the Galaxy's hopes of repeating as MLS Cup champions for a second consecutive season. They will face Real Salt Lake or Seattle in the Western Conference finals.
