Tommy Heinemann, Andres Mendoza and Eddie Gaven scored goals to give the Columbus Crew a 4-1 domination of the Colorado Rapids at Crew Stadium on Sunday night.

Heinemann scored his first MLS goal and Andres Mendoza continued his hot scoring by netting one in each half.

After Conor Casey staked the visitors to an early lead, Eddie Gaven leveled the score before Mendoza put the Crew ahead for good in the 18th minute. He made it 3-1 in the 48th minute while the Rapids struggled all over the field after Casey was ejected in the first half after a violent collision with Crew goalkeeper William Hesmer, who got kicked in the jaw.

Heinemann scored in the 57th minute.

The win moves Columbus (6-4-6, 24 points) into second place in the Eastern Conference, two points in back of Philadelphia with their largest scoring output since a 4-0 win over New England on September 6, 2008.

The Crew is 4-1-3 at home this season.

The Colorado Rapids won their first MLS title, but not the way they had planned it.

FC Dallas defender George John’s own goal in extra time, gave the Rapids a 2-1 win.

In the second half of extra time, Colorado substitute Macoumba Kanji took a long pass from Conor Casey inside the box and stabbed the ball across the front of the Dallas goal. His shot spun off John’s left thigh and over the head of goalkeeper Kevin Hartman.

Kandji, Colorado’s final substitute, suffered a leg injury on that sequence and limped off the field, leaving the Rapids one player short for the final 12 minutes.
