MLS Regular Season
Emilio Renteria capitalized on an error by goalkeeper Tally Hall in the first half, and the Columbus Crew took advantage of the short-handed for two late scores in a comfortable 3-0 victory on Saturday at Crew Stadium.

notably with the insertion of forward Emilio Renteria, and
the Crew responded with their most complete game of the season in a 2-0
All-time record: Series tied 2-2-5. Crew lead 2-1-1 in Columbus.
