Seattle • Seattle's DeAndre Yedlin scored his first career goal five minutes after Colorado took the lead, and the Sounders tied the Rapids 1-1 Saturday, but snapped their seven-game winning streak against them.

The Sounders would have set an MLS record if they had beaten the Rapids an eighth straight time.

Drew Moor tapped in a goal off a corner from Nick LaBrocca to give the Rapids (8-7-7) a 1-0 lead in the 60th minute.

Moor got in front of defender Jhon Kennedy Hurtado for the open shot in front of the net.

Red Bulls 0, Toronto FC 0 • In Toronto, Toronto FC and the New York Red Bulls finished in a 0-0 tie.

With top strikers Danny Koevermans and Robert Earnshaw out injured, Toronto started Jeremy Brockie and Justin Braun up front.

Toronto (2-10-8) has been shut out in its past three road games, a goalless drought that has reached 319 minutes. And Toronto has been blanked in eight of its past 12 outings home or away, with just seven goals during that run.

New York (9-7-5) managed just one shot on target in the first half — a low shot by Thierry Henry that was stopped by Toronto's Joe Bendik.

FC Dallas 0, Impact 0 • In Montreal, the winless streaks dragged on for the Montreal Impact and FC Dallas, as the teams played to a scoreless draw.

Montreal (9-5-5) has gone five games without a victory, while Dallas (8-5-8) has not won since May 25 and is winless in seven — eight if a U.S. Open Cup game is counted.

Revolution 2, Crew 0 • In Columbus, Ohio, Jose Goncalves scored off a corner kick in the second minute of second half stoppage time and Diego Fagundez added a goal two minutes later to give New England a victory against Columbus.

Goncalves got his first goal of the season by heading the cross from Lee Nguyen.
