CHESTER, Pa. (AP) Jamiro Monteiro scored in the 24th minute and the Philadelphia Union extended their unbeaten streak to seven games with a 1-0 victory over the Columbus Crew on Wednesday night.
The Crew's Vito Wormgoor attempted to clear Olivier Mbaizo's cross with a header, but Monteiro chest trapped it at the top of the penalty area and finished a left-footed strike into the center of the goal for his second goal of the season.
The Union (5-2-3) have won four of five to move into a tie with Orlando City for second place in the Eastern Conference standings.
Andre Blake preserved his sixth shutout of the season with a save of Marlon Hairston's shot in the 82nd minute.
The Crew dropped to 4-3-2.
