D.C. United has not lost an MLS game in two months, but it heads into Tuesday's game against the Houston Dynamo with a three-game losing streak at home. How can that be?

United hasn't played an MLS game since June 29 -- a 4-1 victory over the Los Angeles Galaxy on national television -- because of its commitments in the U.S. Open Cup and SuperLiga. Unfortunately, United lost all three SuperLiga games -- all at home to Chivas, Atlante and Houston. If D.C. loses Tuesday's makeup game to the Dynamo, it would mark the first time it has lost four in a row at RFK Stadium.

"The situation that we've been in the last few games, losing three games straight, we don't want to think we are in the same track as the beginning of the season," said United veteran Jaime Moreno. "We want to go back to where we were a month ago." United began 2-7-0 in MLS play but is now 7-7-1 thanks to its six-game unbeaten streak.
