[MLS WINNERS & LOSERS] D.C. United downed Chicago thanks to a fine free kick by Christian Gomez and moved into first place in the East while Houston climb atop the other conference as Chivas USA faltered again. The Red Bulls set a record for futility but Columbus, which beat the Bulls in last year's MLS Cup, is riding high thanks to its Argentine veteran.

WINNERS

 

D.C. UNITED. A penalty kick Jaime Moreno, a brilliant free kick from Christian Gomez, and a penalty kick save by keeper Josh Wicks on a well-placed shot from Brian McBride gave D.C. United a 2-1 win over the Chicago Fire and catapulted United into first place in the East. The win came in front of United's biggest home crowd of the season, 18,369 fans. VIDEO.

GUILLERMO BARROS SCHELOTTO. The 36-year-old Argentine scored both goals for defending champ Columbus, which came from behind to down Chivas USA, 2-1, after Mexican Eduardo Lillingston's sixth goal of the season. Schelotto now has a league-high 10 goals. The win extended the Crew's undefeated streak to nine.  VIDEO

FREDS. Swede Freddie Ljungberg and Colombian Fredy Montero each scored, and assisted on each other's goals, in Seattle's 2-1 win over San Jose that ended the Sounders' six-game winless. VIDEO

CAM WEAVER. In his second game since arriving from San Jose, the 26-year-old forward scored twice for Houston in its 3-1 win over FC Dallas that pulled the Dynamo even with Chivas USA (which lost to the Dynamo in the midweek) on points at the top of the West standings and in front on goal difference. VIDEO.

LOSERS

NEW YORK. The Red Bulls fell, 2-1, to Toronto and set a league record with its 20th consecutive regular-season winless match on the road, surpassing the mark set by Real Salt Lake. The Red Bulls, last place in the East at 2-10-3, last won on the road in May of 2009.

EDDIE LEWIS. The U.S. veteran was red-carded for tossing the ball at Salt Lake's Javier Morales, who was on the ground after being chopped down by Los Angeles teammate Jovan Kirovski. Playing a man up, Real Salt Lake held its 2-0 lead, on goals from Yura Movsisyan and Nat Borchers, and ended the Galaxy's 10-game unbeaten streak, which consisted mostly of ties. VIDEO

FC DALLAS. Its 3-1 loss to Houston, in front of 8,580 fans at Pizza Hut Park, drops FC Dallas' home record this season to 1-3-3 and its all-time record against the Texas rival to 1-7-5 (1-2-3 at home).

NEW ENGLAND. The Revs fell, 3-1, at Kansas City, which got goals from Davy Arnaud, a Jeff Larentowicz own goal, and Aaron Hohlbein. The game was tied, 1-1, when the Revs' Emmanuel Osei was red-carded in the 31st minute. The loss dropped New England to .500.
