Tim Melia denied Gyasi Zardes twice, including a save on a penalty kick he conceded, as Sporting KC and 10-man Columbus finished scoreless. (2:11)

KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- Tim Melia had his sixth shutout of the season, including a diving save on a penalty kick, in Sporting Kansas City's 0-0 draw with Columbus Crew SC on Sunday night.

Melia, the 2017 MLS Goalkeeper of the Year, finished with three saves. After he was called for a foul against Gyasi Zardes -- tied for the MLS lead with eight goals -- in the area, Melia went to his left to deny Zardes' penalty kick in the 43rd minute.

Kansas City is unbeaten in its last four games and has just one loss since dropping the season opener against New York City FC.

Crew SC played the second half a man down after Federico Higuain was shown a straight red card for a serious foul in first-half stoppage time.

Columbus is unbeaten in its last seven following a three-game losing streak. Zack Steffen had three saves in his MLS-leading seventh shutout this season.

Kansas City is unbeaten in its last six home games, outscoring opponents 13-4.
