Freddy Adu entered the game in the 82nd minute, and was hit with yellow card in his season-low eight minutes of play.

Buddle opened the scoring in the 43rd minute after midfielder Ross Paule took the ball from Chicago's Andy Williams.
One minute later, Crew midfielder Kyle Martino stripped the ball from Chris Armas and set up Cunningham, whose shot deflected off Chicago's Kelly Gray and into the back of the net.
