COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (AP) — Marlon Hairston had a goal and an assist to help the Colorado Rapids beat the Vancouver Whitecaps 2-0 on Saturday night.
The Rapids (11-3-8) rebounded after their franchise-record 15-game undefeated streak was snapped in a 5-1 loss at New York City last Saturday.
Hairston opened the scoring in the 44th minute with a close-range finish on Marc Burch's cross. It was Hairston's third goal in his last four games.
Dominique Badji finished Hairston's low cross to give the Rapids a 2-0 lead in the 60th minute.
Colorado moved within three points of MLS-leading FC Dallas and remained in second place in the overall standings. The Whitecaps (8-10-6) lost their second in a row and are winless in their last four.
