COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Ethan Finlay and Jairo Arrieta scored in the first half and the Columbus Crew beat the Chicago Fire 2-0 on Saturday night to end an eight-game winless streak. Bryant Reeves Jersey . Finlay, making his first start of the season and seventh in his three-year career, scored in the 10th minute, and Arrieta followed 15 minutes later with his third goal of the season. After failing to score in his first 40 MLS games, Finlay has goals in two straight. Goalkeeper Sean Johnson came out to challenge near the edge of the box, but Finlay -- who ran behind Fire defender Greg Cochrane -- was able to dribble past him and shoot just before reaching the end line. "I did think maybe I should have taken it inside at first," Finlay said. "You saw Cochrane make a nice play and he almost got back to the line. It was a tight angle but it found the back of the net." Federico Higuain assisted on both goals, and Steve Clark made four saves for his second shutout of the season. The Crew (4-4-4) were 0-4-4 since beating Seattle on March 29. "The backline played fantastic," Clark said. "We did the little thing very well today and if you do that youre going to get shutouts." Chicago (2-3-6) was shut out for the first time this season. "Its one of those games where Columbus was better than us," Chicago coach Frank Yallop said. "They deserved to win the game." Mike Bibby Jersey . Rookie Christian Vazquez got his first three major league hits and drove in three runs, while David Ortiz had three RBIs to break open the game in the sixth inning and lead Boston over the Houston Astros 8-3. Shareef Abdur-Rahim Jersey . -- Patrick Kueng of Switzerland was nearly flawless as he captured his first World Cup and halted Aksel Lund Svindals streak of four straight super-G victories on Saturday. http://www.thegrizzliesofficial.com/Authentic-Brandan-Wright-Grizzlies-Jersey/ . Rookie Christian Vazquez got his first three major league hits and drove in three runs, while David Ortiz had three RBIs to break open the game in the sixth inning and lead Boston over the Houston Astros 8-3.CARSON, Calif. - Steven Gerrard is the next big star in the LA Galaxy.The Liverpool captain will join the defending Major League Soccer champions in July after completing his illustrious career with his boyhood team, the Galaxy announced Wednesday.The 34-year-old midfielder said last week he was leaving Liverpool after the English Premier League season to move stateside. The Galaxy confirmed Gerrards move to Southern California on an 18-month deal as a designated player, which means he will be paid above MLS salary cap.The Galaxy are the most successful club in Major League Soccer history, and I am looking forward to competing for more championships in the years to come, Gerrard said in a statement released by the club.The MLS season begins in March, meaning Gerrard wont team up with league MVP Robbie Keane until midway through the schedule.The move is the latest bold stroke for the Galaxy, who won the MLS Cup in December for the third time in four years and the record fifth time overall.As a versatile midfielder with tremendous finishing ability and leadership skills, Gerrard seems to be an ideal replacement for Landon Donovan, a Galaxy star for the last 10 seasons who briefly played at Everton. The most accomplished player in U.S. soccer history retired last month at 32 years old, worn down by the competitive grind.Gerrard and Keane are both two years older than Donovan, but their partnership is just getting started.I think in the dressing room, he is going to bring qualities we havent seen before, Galaxy coach Bruce Arena said. I think Stevies qualities as a person and a leader (are) outstanding. On the field, he is obviously going to be different than Landon Donovan. The idea is that he is not here to replace Landon Donovan. He is a great addition to our team, a player of quality and experience, and I think he is going to complement the group of players that we have rather well.Arena envisions Gerrard in more of an attacking role in the Galaxy midfield, teaming with Keane and young striker Gyasi Zardes.I think we add another piece to our team that hopefully will allow us to maintain our status in the league, Arena said.Indeed, Galaxy owner Phil Anschutz doesnt hesitate to spend to the limits of the leagues salary constraints for the best available players. The club changed MLS worldwide perception in 2007 when it signed David Beckham for his trailblazing six-year run with the club, ending in 2012 with two straight championships. Chandler Parsons Jersey. .Arena has repeatedly attracted top talent to sun-splashed Hollywood, building a dynasty in a league devoted to parity. Gerrard will join Keane and U.S. national team defender Omar Gonzalez as the Galaxys three designated players, surrounded by a solid group of complementary talent.The future of the team is very bright, Gerrard said.Keane and Gerrard are reunited in what should be a potent offensive pairing.They were teammates with Liverpool from 2008-09. Keane, who grew up as a Liverpool fan in Dublin, spent just 19 games with the Merseyside club before Tottenham reacquired him.Keane, who has been an MLS standout ever since joining the Galaxy past midseason in 2011, immediately put a post on his Facebook page welcoming Stevie G.Great player and a great addition to the team, Keane posted. Heres to 2015 season and hopefully another title.Gerrard has been a staple in Liverpools midfield for 17 years and its full-time captain since 2003, a remarkable run of consistency in European soccer.The Reds longest-serving captain has scored 182 goals in 696 appearances in all competitions while winning 10 major trophies in the last 15 years, including the UEFA Champions League in 2005 and the FA Cup in 2001 and 2006.Gerrard also served as Englands captain during the last two World Cups. He has 21 goals in 114 international appearances — third-most in English history.Gerrard is the second high-profile English player to make an MLS move in the last year, but Manchester City announced last week that Frank Lampard will stay for the rest of the Premier League season instead of switching to its sister club, New York City FC. Lampard was expected to be a cornerstone for the expansion team, and the change of plans enraged many U.S. soccer fans.Gerrard has been left out of Liverpools lineup occasionally this season, yet he still leads the Reds with nine goals, and former teammate Jamie Carragher recently raved about his form. He scored both goals in Liverpools 2-1 FA Cup victory over AFC Wimbledon on Monday night.We are going to be halfway through our league schedule, and he is going to have a short period of time to get adjusted to the team and to the league, Arena said. But I think because of the kind of guy that he is, the qualities that he has as a player, he will make the transition pretty quickly.
