FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -- An own goal off the foot of New York Red Bulls defender Carlos Mendes helped the New England Revolution earn a 2-1 victory Saturday night.

Taylor Twellman's 11th goal of the season, in the first minute of the second half, pulled the Eastern Conference-leading Revolution into a 1-1 tie with New York, which had taken the lead in the 30th minute on Jozy Altidore's eighth goal of the season.

New England's winning goal came in the 80th minute when Mendes -- along the right sideline -- sent a 40-yard ball back toward Red Bulls goalkeeper Jon Conway, intending for a goal kick.

New England improved to 12-5-6 on the season and extended its unbeaten streak against New York in Foxborough to 10 matches (8-0-2).

The Red Bulls (10-9-3) have dropped six straight matches to New England. ^United 2, Toronto FC 0=

TORONTO (AP) -- Brazilian midfielder Fred scored in the eighth minute to give D.C. a win, increasing Toronto FC's scoreless drought to an MLS-record 642 minutes.

D.C. United scored on its first attack when a long ball from the defense was headed by Nick Addlery into the path of Fred, who raced into the penalty area and fired low past Kenny Stamatopoulos for his fourth goal of the season. The goal gave D.C. United (12-6-3) its fifth straight league win.

Toronto (5-12-5), which passed the previous mark of 557 minutes set by Real Salt Lake two years ago, extended its winless skid to eight games. ^Wizards 3, Fire 2=

BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. (AP) -- Chicago's Cuauhtemoc Blanco had a goal and an assist in the win.

Chicago's Ivan Guerrero was taken down at the top of the box in the 43rd minute, resulting in a free kick for the Fire (7-9-5). Blanco sent the ball over the Wizards defensive wall, to the right of goalkeeper Kevin Hartman and into the upper-left corner for a 1-0 lead in the 44th minute.

Kansas City (9-8-5) almost had a goal in the 52nd minute. Davy Arnaud crossed the ball to Sasha Victorine, who sent it into the net, but was offside.

In the 87th minute, Blanco crossed a perfect ball into the net. Fire forward Calen Carr headed it home for a 2-0 lead. ^Crew 1, Dynamo 1=

HOUSTON (AP) -- Alejandro Moreno scored in the 17th minute, and Nate Jaqua scored on a rebound in the 79th minute and Columbus and Houston ended in a tie.

Moreno gave the Crew (6-7-9) the lead in the 17th minute after Guillermo Barros Schelotto went past two Houston defenders in the box and drew another over allowing Moreno to be left open on the right side of the box. Schelotto passed it to Moreno and he hit a hard shot to the left side of the net.

Marcos Gonzalez picked up two yellow cards in a five-minute span to end the first half resulting in his ejection in the 38th minute, and Houston (11-7-5) had a man advantage for the last 52 minutes.

The Dynamo took advantage with Jaqua's goal in the 79th minute. Joseph Ngwenya took a shot from the right box, but Columbus goalkeeper Will Hesmer blocked it. Jaqua picked up the loose ball in front and knocked it in for the goal.
