WASHINGTON (AP) — Andrew Wenger had one goal and one assist, Alex Lima added three assists and the Houston Dynamo beat D.C. United 3-1 on Saturday night for their first road victory of the season.

D.C. United (5-13-3) has lost five in a row, including a 4-3 loss to Seattle — in which United held a 3-0 second-half lead — on Wednesday.

Wenger opened the scoring with a bouncing header, off a corner kick by Lima, in the sixth minute. Mauro Manotas made it 2-0 in the 15th, side-footing a perfectly placed cross from Lima into an open net, and Memo Rodriguez made it 3-0 with a header in the 17th. Lima, on the right side, dropped a back-footer to Wenger, who first-timed a high pass to Rodriguez for the finish from near the spot.

Bobby Boswell put away a header, off the feed from Lloyd Sam, for United (5-13-3) in the 62nd minute.
