Christian Ramirez scored twice, Darwin Quintero had a goal and two assists and Minnesota United won their third in a row with a 5-1 rout of Los Angeles FC on Sunday night.
    
Ramirez and Quintero scored back-to-back goals to make it 3-1 at the end of the first half. Ramirez put away a loose ball in the 45th minute after Quintero's corner was played out and then headed back into the area by Eric Miller. Quintero then made a run up the left channel behind a well-played ball from Miller and slotted the finish past the goalkeeper in the first minute of first-half stoppage time.
    
Miguel Ibarra and Ramirez scored in the 56th and 58th minutes to make it 5-1.
    
Rasmus Schuller opened the scoring with his first MLS goal for Minnesota (9-11-1) in the 25th minute, finishing Quintero's pass from the middle of the area. Benny Feilhaber tied it for LAFC (10-5-5) a minute later with a blast from close range.
    
Minnesota won four in a row at home for the first time in franchise history.
    
LA had a six-game unbeaten streak snapped.
