CINCINNATI: Lucas Rodriguez had two goals, Wayne Rooney scored his 11th of the season and DC United beat expansion FC Cincinnati 4-1 on Thursday.

DC United (9-5-8) have lost just once in the last eight games to move within one point of first-place Philadelphia in the Eastern Conference. Cincinnati (5-14-2) had their two-game winning streak snapped.

Rodriguez opened the scoring in the 42nd minute, curling a shot around goalkeeper Spencer Richey. FC Cincinnati are 0-12-1 when allowing the first goal.

Rodriguez gave United a 2-1 lead on a deflected shot from distance in the 59th. Rooney made it 3-1 in the 64th and Paul Arriola capped it in the 73rd _ both on breakaways. Emmanuel Ledesma tied it at 1 in the 54th on a penalty kick after Arriola's hand ball in the box. Kendall Waston had a header strike the crossbar in the 25th. IANS
