— Omar Cummings scored twice and added an assist to help the Colorado Rapids extend their home unbeaten streak over D.C. United to nine with a 3-0 victory on Saturday night.

In the 11th minute, Cummings took a pass from captain Pablo Mastroeni and ran past defender Greg Janicki before pausing in the box and curling the ball past Josh Wicks in the United (5-2-8) goal.

Cummings found the back of the net just before halftime from a near-impossible angle to give the Rapids a 2-0 lead.

Cummings, who paired with recently acquired Pat Noonan up front for Colorado (5-2-5), has five goals this season.

Four minutes into the second half, Cummings dashed into the box and passed to midfielder Colin Clark who scored a third for the Rapids.

Eastern Conference-leading United, playing its third game in eight days, did not have Fred, Luciano Emilio or Jaime Moreno available.

United fell to 0-6-3 in its last nine trips to Colorado. The Rapids played without Conor Casey who is with the United States at the Confederations Cup in South Africa.
