United starts crucial homestand against Sounders

D.C. United captain Dax McCarty admitted it was normal for a young team to have "growing pains," but Friday's defeat to the Houston Dynamo was "embarrassing."

United allowed four goals in its second straight match, losing 4-1 to Houston to push its losing streak to three games across all competitions. D.C. dropped its previous MLS match 4-0 to Red Bull New York, and lost in the U.S. Open Cup to the New England Revolution, 3-2, in between.
