The Revolution extended their winless streak to five games, but they seemed content after they were held to a 0-0 draw away to Columbus Crew on Saturday night.

The Revolution (6-7-8, 26 points) stifled the Crew’s offense but couldn’t get away with attacking with Jozy Altidore as the lone forward or with newcomer Giacomo Vrioni in a two-forward lineup. But the Revolution were able to stop Cuch Hernandez, who scored four goals in his first three MLS starts, as the Crew (7-5-9, 30 points) extended their unbeaten streak to nine games (4-0-5 ).

The last time the Revolution visited Lower.com Field in Columbus, they spoiled the Crew’s stadium opener with a 2-2 score last season. The Revolution went 0-2-3 in their last five games, but extended their unbeaten streak against the Crew to five games (1-0-4).
