Midfielder Marcos Senna snapped the Cosmos'
294-minute scoreless drought when he scored in the 61st minute. Minnesota pressed hard in the last 25 minutes but couldn't get a ball past Cosmos keeper Jimmy
Mauer, who recorded his third shutout in five games.
-- Indy Eleven bolstered its roster with a pair of midfielders, acquiring Blake Smith
on loan from MLS’s Montreal Impact and signing 20-year-old Kevin Rozo, who was born in Miami and grew up in the youth development program of Colombian club
