Emilio Renteria scored on a second-half penalty kick allowing the Columbus Crew to tie the Seattle Sounders FC at 1-1 Saturday night at soggy Crew Stadium. The tie also allowed the Crew to move into a second place tie in the Eastern Conference.

Fredy Montero scored in the 7th minute for Seattle.

Montero put the Sounders ahead with a header, an assist from Erik Friberg for his cross from 35 yards to the center of the box. The goal was the fifth off a header this year for Seattle, which leads Major League Soccer in that category.

The Crew (3-1-4) has not lost since the first game, running its unbeaten streak to seven games and it stays undefeated at home (3-0-2).
