D.C. United was hoping to get some sort of result in a place (Yankee Stadium) they hadn't against a team (New York City FC) opening up a stadium for another team the previous week. But the 4-0 loss showed several different things of concern for fans, perhaps things beyond what could be dismissed as a one-off rout.

We reveal the votes and look at a possible perk of the win.

D.C. United had to have anticipated seeing Sebastian Giovinco and Toronto FC in some manner or fashion Saturday night. While they dodged a bit of a bullet, there was still three more national team players on the TFC squad. Both teams had been playing a few games of late, so there was some rotation on both sides, even before an international break, but the Black-and-Red managed to steal a win at BMO field and further cementing their chances of a postseason berth.

We look at some moments from Saturday.

D.C. United was going up to Canada to play a Toronto FC side that had been looking not as good as they normally would (thanks to the absence of Sebastian Giovinco), but still among the East leaders. Dressing an A-minus/B-plus side that was definitely leggy from the work they'd put in over the last two and a half weeks, their 2-1 win may have been as impressive as the ones which have given them all this goalscoring over the last two months.
