MOST COMMENTED

The Columbus Crew picked up its first MLS win in almost two months Wednesday night when it beat the Kansas City Wizards, 2-1, for only the club's second win of the season.

Eddie Gaven and Stefani Miglioranzi scored goals -- the first of the season for both players -- to break a 0-0 deadlock in the second half. Gaven scored on a shot that went through the legs of Kansas City defender Jimmy Conrad. Crew playmaker Guillermo Barros Schelotto earned the corner from which he found Miglioranzi for the second goal.

Kansas City had the edge in chances, but the Crew shut down the Wizards, unbeaten in their previous four games, until stoppage time when Jack Jewsbury scored his first goal of the season.

The game was the first this season in which no cautions were shown.
