FC Dallas is winless in six games. It lost for the fifth time in six games and sixth in eight.

Keane scored on a 20-yard rocket to the upper-left corner from a defense-splitting Zardes pass in the 23rd minute, his sixth goal of the season, and Zardes found space between three defenders to head home a chip from Juninho in the 44th minute.

D.C. United 2, Dynamo 0 • In Wasington, Chris Rolfe and Fabian Espindola scored in United’s first win against Houston in eight regular-season or playoff games.

United moved ahead of the Dynamo and into second place in the Eastern Conference.
