ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Angelo Rodriguez scored late and Minnesota United beat D.C. United 1-0 on Sunday to snap a three-game winless streak and get its first win at Allianz Field.

Minnesota played its first two MLS seasons at TCF Bank Arena in Minneapolis prior to the opening of Allianz Stadium on April 13.

Romain Metanire, on the right side, played an arcing entry to a charging Angelo Rodriguez, who side-netted the redirection from the corner of the 6-yard box to make it 1-0 in the 82nd minute.

Minnesota (4-3-2) has back-to-back shutouts for the first time in franchise history. The Loons had just two shutouts in 2018.

D.C. United (5-3-2) had 13 total shots but just one on target and had a goal by rookie Donovan Pines disallowed after video review showed D.C.'s Frederic Brillant interfered with goalkeeper Vito Mannone.

Mannone, a 31-year old who signed with Minnesota on Feb. 10, had one save for his third MLS shutout.
