Medina, Johnson help NYCFC beat Crew, stay unbeaten at home

NEW YORK (AP) Jesus Medina scored his fourth MLS goal and Sean Johnson had five saves to help New York City FC beat the Columbus Crew 2-0 on Saturday night.

Johnson has three consecutive shutouts, giving him a career-high and MLS-leading eight this season.

Medina chipped in from the top of the 6-yard box to open the scoring in the 80th minute. Jonathan Lewis intercepted a pass from goalkeeper Zack Steffen and ripped a first-timer off the left post, but the rebound went directly back to Lewis. He slipped around two defenders and rolled a cross to Medina, who casually trapped it before finishing into an open net.

New York City (12-4-4) has outscored its opponents 27-4 and is unbeaten, with one tie, in 11 home matches this season. NYCFC was without three of its top four scorers this season: David Villa, Ismael Tajouri-Shradi and Jo Inge Berget. That trio has 20 of the team's 40 goals this season.

Columbus (8-7-6) was shutout for the fourth time in its last five games.
