The Columbus Crew fell to the Colorado Rapids, 1-0, Saturday night at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, in the club’s final match before the league-wide break for the upcoming 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.

The game was a battle between the second and third stingiest defenses in the MLS, both sides struggled to create openings throughout the first half and much of the second.

The first clear-cut chance of the night came in the 73rd minute, as the Crew pushed forward in a counter-attack opportunity after Pablo Mastreoni passed loosely into the path of  the Crew  midfield, Eddie Gaven pushed forward and passed to Steven Lenhart, who then laid  the pass off to an open Guillermo Barros Schelotto. However the Crew’s star player rushed his shot,  pushing the scoring chance over the crossbar.

With five minutes left in the game, the Rapids would finally break the deadlock from a set piece. Jamie Smith took the free kick from near the midfield mark and sent in a high cross into the box for a diving Drew Moor. The defender struck the ball hard and into the ground, sneaking it in between the post and Columbus goalkeeper William Hesmer.

The Crew’s next game is June 26 when it hosts D.C. United at Crew Stadium in a regionally televised  match starting at 7:30 p.m. on ONN-TV.

MEMORIAL TOURNAMENT RUNNERUP: RICKIE FOWLER

MEGASPORTSNEWS.COM GOLF COVERAGE

DUBLIN, OHIO – Rickie Fowler, the rookie from Oklahoma State picked up a few fans at the 2010 Memorial Tournament with his colorful clothing from Puma and the fact that he is young guy who seems like he’s having fun on the golf course. Some of my fellow members of the media says that Fowler might just be the next Tiger Woods. When they said that I was thinking of the Tiger Woods on the golf course, not the one with all of the off-course problems.

Coming into Sunday, the tournament was Rickie Fowler’s to lose but he was being contested by Justin Rose and Tim Petrovic. Fowler had dazzled the galleries with rounds of 65, 66 and 69.

But Sundays can sometimes make or break a golfer, especially rookies due to the lack of experience playing with older golfers on the big stage of the PGA Tour.

The 21-year-old Fowler was trying to become the youngest winner on the Jack Nicklaus-built course. The rookie was doing fine until he got on the back nine and the problems started to unravel especially on the tee shot on the 12th hole where he hit it with a 5-iron and the shot went into the bridge. He was aiming for the back bunker.

Fowler looked very colorful in his Oklahoma State Orange which he wears on Sundays.

He ended up with a 73 on Sunday, 15 shots under par at 273 for the Memorial Tournament finishing second and wound up with a check worth $648,000.00.  It was his second runner-up finish in 2010.

REDS UPDATE: Series with Washington Nationals (Friday & Saturday)

compiled from staff and wire reports

FRIDAY AT WASHINGTON

Ian Desmond hit an RBI single to break a seventh-inning tie, and the center of a wild sacrifice-fly double-play two plays later as the Washington Nationals beat the Cincinnati Reds 4-2.

Josh Willingham led off the seventh with a single, and Roger Bernadina reached on an error by centerfielder Drew Stubbs who collided with left fielder Jonny Gomes. Desmond’s RBI single gave Washington a 3-2 lead, and a sacrifice bunt put runners at second and third with one out.

Willie Harris hit a short fly ball to center field. Stubbs’ throw home would’ve got the runner easily, but if bounced off the mound and high into the air, allowing Bernadina to score and Desmond took off for third, Desmond beat the  throw from Enerio Del Rosario who backed up the throw to the plate, but his foot appeared to momentarily come  off the bag at the end of his slide. Third base umpire Paul Schreiber ruled Desmond safe. Dusty Baker came out to argue the call and crew chief Joe West, who was working first base, consulted with all four umpires, overturned the call. As the Nationals argued the reversed call, Desmond was tossed from the game by West.

Tyler Clippard (8-3) earned the win by working a scoreless seventh inning and allowed one hit. Matt Capps closed the ninth inning for his 18th save in 21 chances.

SATURDAY AT WASHINGTON

Rookie right-hander Mike Leake allowed an unearned run over seven innings to remain unbeaten and the Cincinnati Reds defeated the Washington Nationals 5-1 Saturday night.

Leake (5-0) allowed seven hits, walked none and struck out five, becoming the first pitcher in Reds history to go undefeated after 11 major league starts. He is the first Cincinnati starting pitcher to win his first five decisions since Santo Alcala in 1976.

Leake is proving that he can hit as well, singling twice in three at-bats to raise his average to .417.

The Reds used RBI doubles from Joey Votto and Orlando Cabrera and run-scoring singles by Brandon Phillips and Jay Bruce to break a two-game losing streak.
