Washington's lone goal stands up for Crew

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Dante Washington scored early in the second half and rookie goalkeeper Jon Busch made six saves for his second career shutout as the Columbus Crew beat D.C. United 1-0 Wednesday night.

Washington beat goalkeeper Nick Rimando near the goalpost with a low shot from the right side of the box in the 52nd minute. Brian West and Brian Maisonneuve assisted on the forward's sixth goal of the season. Washington hit a post with a header four minutes earlier.

Columbus (7-8-4) is 2-0-1 in its last three games, but won for the first time in its last four at home.

One of Busch's saves came on Richie Williams' shot from 18 yards in the 26th minute. Both of Busch's shutouts and three of his four wins have been against D.C. (6-10-2).

United have the worst road record in the league this season, with only a tie in eight games. They are also winless in their last five games overall.

United played without starters Marco Etcheverry, Ivan McKinley, Santino Quaranta, and Eddie Pope because of injury or suspension. Forward Jamie Moreno left in the 63rd minute with a pulled hamstring.
