Alex Muyl headed in Taylor Washington's cross for his first goal of the season to lift Nashville SC to a 1-0 victory over the Columbus Crew at Lower.com Field on Saturday evening.

Muyl's open header -- thanks to a slip from Columbus left back Pedro Santos -- lifted Nashville to a second victory five matches into an eight-game road trip before they open GEODIS Park on May 1.

Columbus suffered their first defeat of the season, their first home loss in four matches dating back to last year and their first failure to score at home in 13 games, since a scoreless draw against the same Nashville side last season.

The Crew outshot Nashville 19-6, but put only four of those efforts on target on a night the visitors had arguably the three most dangerous looking chances.
