Crew ties FC Cincinnati 2-2 on Berry's goal in 77th minute
CINCINNATI (AP) Miguel Berry scored in the 77th minute to help the 10-man Columbus Crew tie FC Cincinnati 2-2 on Friday night.
Columbus (4-4-5) has won just one of its last 19 away matches - with nine draws. Cincinnati (4-5-3) extended its unbeaten streak to four games.
Lucas Zelarayan pulled Columbus to 2-1 in first-half stoppage time with a shot from distance. Berry tied it at 2 by running past the defense for Zelarayan's through ball and sending it over a sliding Kenneth Vermeer, who had come out of his area.
Edgar Castillo scored from distance 25 seconds after kickoff - the fastest goal in MLS this season - for Cincinnati. Luciano Acosta made it 2-0 in the 24th by sliding a loose ball under goalkeeper Evan Bush.
Crew defender Harrison Afful was sent off in the 42nd minute after receiving his second yellow card.
