Oswaldo Minda provided the game's only goal in the first half, which was enough to keep Toronto winless this season.

Toronto FC can't buy a win.

For the fifth time in five games to open the MLS season, Toronto came up short, as it dropped a 1-0 decision to visiting Chivas USA at BMO Field on Saturday.

Oswaldo Minda's header off a corner kick in the first half led Chivas USA to the club's third road win this season. It was Minda's first MLS goal.

Toronto, which made it to the semifinal of CONCACAF Champions League this year, has been desperately seeking success in MLS. TFC manager Aron Winter went with an attacking formation against Chivas USA, but his team walked away scoreless for the third time this MLS season.

The Reds, however, did have their chances early in the first half, but it would be Chivas to strike first. In the 31st minute, Minda headed in a corner delivered by Miller Bolanos.

Toronto has been outscored 10-2 this season with a matchup against Chicago Fire next week. Winter will hope that the return of Torsten Frings can jumpstart the team.

Chivas, which evened its record at 3-3, will return home to face the Philadelphia Union.
