WASHINGTON – Fabian Espindola scored twice and added an assist to lead D.C. United to a 4-1 victory over short-handed FC Dallas in a Major League Soccer match Saturday.

Bobby Boswell and Sean Franklin also scored for Washington, which extended its unbeaten run to five matches and scored all of its goals after the first-half ejection of Dallas defender Zach Loyd.

Dallas’ Michel was sent off late by referee Fotis Bazakos.

FC Dallas entered the match as the league leader.

Eddie Johnson, a D.C. United forward and U.S. World Cup hopeful who used to play for Sounders FC, assisted on Espindola’s first goal just before halftime, but injured his left hamstring in the 51st minute.

Mauro Diaz scored in the 13th minute for FC Dallas.

Bazakos issued a second yellow card for Loyd’s slide tackle on D.C. United’s Davy Arnaud in the 39th minute.
