In MLS, teams are often separated by their ability to scratch out points on the road. For Houston Dynamo, that's currently a big concern.

Houston’s road record (1-9-1), including losing their last six away from home, is second-worst in the league, while their goal differential (-19) is dead last. Come Saturday at the Columbus Crew (8 p.m. CT; CSN Plus/Telemundo), they'll have a chance to start putting things right.

After a first half of seeing 60 percent of the possession but no goals, the Houston Dynamo were frustrated. Seeing good play on the field, head coach Dominic Kinnear preached patience. And after the final whistle blew, the plan paid off and the result was theirs.

Boniek García might be one of the Houston Dynamo's most talented and experienced players, but he sure is having a tough time getting on the stat sheet this season.

García has made 18 starts this year, but he hasn't scored since the season opener and his only assist came on May 3. For a player of his quality and CV, the struggles are puzzling and something he and Houston hope to correct when they host the Philadelphia Union on Friday night (8 p.m. CT; TICKETS).
