ORLANDO, Fla. (AP)Daryl Dike had a goal and an assist in his first start in two months, Junior Urso also scored and Orlando City beat the Columbus Crew 3-2 on Saturday night.

Dike side-footed a one-touch pass to Urso for a first-timer that capped the scoring in the 69th minute.

Orlando City (10-4-8) has won five straight against the defending MLS champion Crew, its longest winning streak against any team in its MLS history, and is unbeaten in seven straight overall.

Dike blasted a top-netter in the 26th minute, and Silvester van de Water redirected a long arcing ball-in by Ruan to make it 2-0 about three minutes later.

After an Orlando City own goal in the 52nd minute, Miguel Berry bounced a shot over the head of goalkeeper Adam Grinwis to pull the Crew (7-10-6) even in the 54th.

Columbus has lost seven of its last eight.

RAPIDS 1, EARTHQUAKES 0

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) – Dominique Badji came on in the 88th minute and scored moments later to lift Colorado past San Jose.

On the counter-attack, after a turnover by San Jose in its attacking third, Jonathan Lewis played a though ball to Nicolas Mezquida, who beat a defender before tapping a pass that led Badji to the center of the area for a one-touch finish in the 89th minute.

The Rapids (12-4-5) are unbeaten, with five wins, in their last seven games.

The Earthquakes (6-8-8) had their 11-game unbeaten streak end.

WHITECAPS 2, AUSTIN FC 1

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) – Erik Godoy tied it in the 70th minute and Deiber Caicedo gave Vancouver the lead in the 83rd in the Whitecaps’ victory over Austin FC.

The Whitecaps (7-7-8) matched a club record with their fourth consecutive victory and pushed their franchise-record undefeated streak to 10. Interim coach Vanni Sartini is 2-0 since taking over after Marc Dos Santos was fired last week.

Sebastian Driussi scored for Austin (5-13-4) in the 45th minute.

REAL SALT LAKE 3, FC DALLAS 2

SANDY, Utah (AP) – Jonathan Menendez scored his first MLS goal and Real Salt Lake rallied to beat FC Dallas.

Albert Rusnak and Justen Glad also scored for Real Salt Lake. Franco Jara and Jesus Ferreira scored for FC Dallas (6-10-7).

INTER MIAMI 1, CINCINNATI 0

CINCINNATI (AP) – Brek Shea scored in the 90th minute – his first goal since May 16 – to help Inter Miami beat Cincinnati.

Nicolas Figal played an arcing ball-in from near midfield to Shea, who flicked in a side-netter in the waning moments.

Miami (7-9-5) has one-goal wins in each of its first three matches against FC Cincinnati, the only team Inter Miami has played more than once and has a perfect record against in MLS. Cincinnati (3-10-8) is winless, with five losses, in a club-record 12 straight matches.
