COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Michael Bradley scored twice to lead the U.S. to a 2-0 victory over Mexico in a World Cup qualifier Wednesday night, preserving the Americans' domination in the series over the last nine years.
On a wet and windy night at Crew Stadium - under the threat of a tornado watch - the Americans ran their record to 9-0-2 on U.S. soil against Mexico since 2000.
Beasley's corner kick found Landon Donovan at the far side of the 6-yard box, with Donovan heading it back into the scrum. Oguchi Onyewu's header was stopped by diving Mexico goaltender Oswaldo Sanchez, but the rebound came right into the path of Bradley, who kicked in the winner from 6 yards.
