KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) Tim Melia had his sixth shutout of the season, including a diving save on a penalty kick, in Sporting Kansas City's 0-0 tie with the Columbus Crew on Sunday night.

Melia, the 2017 MLS Goalkeeper of the Year, finished three saves. After he was called for a foul against Gyasi Zardes - tied for the MLS lead with eight goals - in the area, Melia went to his left to deny Zardes' penalty kick in the 43rd minute.

Kansas City (7-2-4) is unbeaten in its last four games and has just one loss since dropping the season opener against New York City FC.
