  • Crew-Impact Preview (The Associated Press)

    After a relatively quiet first three MLS seasons, Justin Meram has been one of the biggest reasons why the Columbus Crew have turned things around offensively. As Meram looks to score in a career-best fourth straight match, the visiting Crew try to continue climbing the Eastern Conference ladder by dealing the Montreal Impact their ninth loss in 10 contests Saturday night.

  • Justin Meram leads Crew past Dynamo 3-0 (The Associated Press)

    COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Justin Meram had a goal and an assist to lead the Columbus Crew over the Houston Dynamo 3-0 on Saturday night.

  • Dynamo-Crew Preview (The Associated Press)

    The Columbus Crew have shifted their attention toward advancing in the Eastern Conference playoff race now that they've overcome a lengthy scoring slump. A matchup with the Houston Dynamo, mired in their worst ever road stretch, could aid their cause. After totaling 14 goals during a 1-7-8 stretch from the beginning of April though the middle of July, Columbus (7-8-9) has scored 11 times while going 3-1-1 to move within two points of third-place Toronto in the East. Federico Higuain has three goals and two assists in that span, while Bernardo Anor, Ethan Finlay and Justin Meram have scored two apiece.

  • Galaxy-Rapids Preview (The Associated Press)

    While the Los Angeles Galaxy are coming off their worst loss of the season, such embarrassments have quickly become the norm for the Colorado Rapids. Both clubs will try to recover Wednesday night in Colorado, and the Rapids will certainly be happy to be home after furthering their road struggles. Los Angeles (9-5-7) suffered a 4-1 defeat in Columbus on Saturday, its worst MLS loss since falling 5-0 at New England on June 2, 2013. "Bad performance all around," captain Robbie Keane told the club's official website.

  • Crew say goodbye to Donovan, beat Galaxy 4-1 (The Associated Press)

    COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Justin Meram and Ethan Finlay scored in the first half to lead the Columbus Crew to a 4-1 victory over the Los Angeles Galaxy on Saturday night.

  • Toronto FC-Sporting Kansas City Preview (The Associated Press)

    A climb to the top of the Eastern Conference would be a whole lot easier for Toronto FC with some success against Sporting Kansas City. Its last regular-season chance to gain on the East leader in a head-to-head matchup comes Saturday night in Kansas City. Toronto (9-7-5) enters the match seven points back of Kansas City (11-6-6) with two games in hand, but it can't seem to break through against the defending MLS Cup champion. Kansas City is 11-4-5 in the series, its best winning percentage (.675) against any MLS team.

  • Galaxy-Crew Preview (The Associated Press)

    The Los Angeles Galaxy have been the best team in MLS since the middle of May, but keeping that run going is about to become a bit more difficult. The club opens a stretch of four games in 12 days Saturday night with a visit to the Columbus Crew and a coach they know quite well. The match marks Los Angeles coach Bruce Arena's first clash with former Galaxy player and coach Gregg Berhalter, who played for Arena from 2009-11 and was labeled a player-coach in his final season. Galaxy defender Omar Gonzalez, the 2009 Rookie of the Year, spent plenty of time on Arena's back line with Berhalter.
