Chivas USA 1-0 D.C. United: Torres settles battle of league's bottom teams

The on-loan Chivas de Guadalajara striker continued his impressive form in MLS, scoring the game's only goal.

Erick Torres se lamenta una falla de Chivas

Erick Torres scored the game's only goal in a 1-0 Chivas USA win over D.C. United at StubHub Center on Sunday night.

The home side opened the scoring just inside the beginning of the second half, as a cross wasn't dealt with by Nick DeLeon, and Torres cleaned up right in front of Bill Hamid for his seventh of the season in just nine games with the team.

United looked for a late equalizer, but its league-worst offense couldn't muster a goal against Chivas USA's league-worst defense. In a battle of the East's worst versus the West's worst, the Goats came out on top.
