COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ethan Finlay and Justin Meram scored and the Columbus Crew beat the San Jose Earthquakes 2-0 on Saturday night.

Finlay put Meram’s wide cross into the right corner to open the scoring for the Crew (5-9-11) in the 32nd minute.

Meram added a goal in the 84th minute on a penalty kick he drew against San Jose defender Marvell Wynne. Meram then beat Andrew Tarbell, the backup goalkeeper who entered as a substitute late in the first half when starter David Bingham left with a back injury.

Columbus’ Wil Trapp also left the game with a first-half injury after he made head-to-head contact with Shaun Francis as both went for a header in the ninth minute.

San Jose dropped to 7-8-11.
