COLUMBUS, Ohio — Pedro Santos scored in the 50th minute to help the Columbus Crew beat Nashville SC 2-0 on Saturday night. 

Eastern Conference-leading Columbus is unbeaten in five matches. Nashville snapped a four-match undefeated streak.  

Gyasi Zardes scored on a back-heel flick from close range in the third minute of second-half stoppage time. Zardes nearly scored in the 23rd minute but he sailed his shot over the crossbar. 

Zardes has three goals in the last two matches.

Santos fired a left-footed shot from just inside the 18-yard box on a cross from Zardes that beat diving goalkeeper Joe Willis. 

Santos scored 10 goals in the past 11 matches.
