At 3-24-7, United became the first MLS club to win fewer than four games. Their 0.65 goals per game average is the lowest the league has seen. The minus-37 goal differential tied for the all-time worst.
D.C. United is winless on the road in MLS this season and has the league's worst record with only three victories and 15 points. Regardless, the club secured a spot in the 2014-15 CONCACAF Champions League with the victory.

But what the 49-year-old can't wait to discuss is a post-playing days photograph, attached to a whiteboard in the corner of his office.
United (2-12-3) was shut out for the 10th time this season and resumed its losing form after snapping a club-record 13-match winless run with a 1-0 home win over San Jose last weekend.

Kitchen has carved a reputation as a valuable ally to D.C. United's defensive corps. He wins tackles in midfield, snuffing attacks in their infancy. He keeps the ball moving, preventing sustained pressure. Essentially, he gets them out of jams.
"This season has now been forgotten in my brain," Hamid said after the 2-1 defeat to the Houston Dynamo. "I'm sure every single one of us are in the same boat. It's now in the past. Just thinking about this is depressing."
"The confidence has always been high, we know we have the talent," Hamid said. "It's just finding the final touch, that's all it's been."
