Columbus Crew SC battled a persistent New England Revolution in its first home match since March 31. The Black & Gold out-shot the Revolution, 18 to 9 respectively, but finished in a wild 2-2 draw at MAPFRE Stadium.

Crew SC out-passed (83%) and out-possessed (60%) the Revolution.

Gyasi Zardes scored his 5th goal of the season for Columbus

In the ninth minute, Federico Higuain delivered a long cross to Milton Valenzuela, who headed it goalward. New England defender Andrew Farrell stepped in to block Valenzuela’s ball, only to head in the own goal to put Columbus up 1-0. New England responded five minutes later as forward Teal Burnbury scored the tying goal.

Nearing the end of the first half, Gyasi Zardes finished a clean passing sequence from Higuain and Pedro Santos, scoring the go-ahead goal for a 2-1 Columbus lead.

New England equalized the game for the final time minutes later in stoppage time, as Cristian Penilla scored on a nice pass from Juan Agudelo.

Crew SC out-passed (83%) and out-possessed (60%) the Revolution. The draw snaps a three-match losing streak for Columbus.

“The effort was outstanding tonight,” said Sporting Director and Head Coach Gregg Berhalter, “The desire was outstanding and we played some good soccer along the way.”

Teal Bunbury netted his 3rd goal of the season for the Revs

Crew SC returns to MAPFRE Stadium next Saturday, April 28, to host the San Jose Earthquakes for Super Hero Night. The match kicks off at 7:30 p.m. ET, with supporters encouraged to dress as their favorite Crew SC player — or Super Hero.

Cristian Penilla's 2nd goal of the season enabled the Revs to get a tie on the road

Dragons winning streak ends at nine as Fort Wayne brings out the lumber in 8-2 wacking

 

 

Prior to Saturday’s game at Fort Wayne, Indiana, the Dayton Dragons had been cruising along with timely hitting, great pitching and defense in winning nine games in a row in the always tough Class A Midwest League. They had not lost a game since April 6.

The home team TinCaps brought out the lumber scoring 8 runs and smashing out 13 hits in an 8-2 rout of the Dragons.

The nine-game winning streak was the Dragons longest since 2007 and tied for third longest in Dayton franchise history.

Fort Wayne, now 5-11 on the young season, scored early and never looked back. They took a 3-0 lead in the first and added four runs in the sixth inning.

The loss drops the Dragons to 9-4. They are now in second place, one game behind the West Michigan Whitecaps in the Midwest League East Division.

Even in defeat, Dayton still had nine hits with Hendrik Clementina, Narcisco Crook, Jeter Downs and Montrell Marshall each contributing two hits apiece. Clementina, the best hitter on the team, raised his average to .483 with those two hits.

Winning pitcher was TinCaps starter Osvaldo Hernandez, he’s 1-2. Allowed 1 run, 5 hits in 5 innings.

Losing pitcher was Dragons starter Tyler Mondile, who is 0-2. Allowed a first inning, three-run homer to Tirso Ornelas, 6 hits, 4 runs, 2 walks and 6 strikeouts.
