COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Federico Higuain broke Columbus' career assist record in the first half and added a goal in the second in the Crew's 3-1 victory over the Los Angeles Galaxy on Wednesday night.

Columbus (5-6-1) snapped a five-game losing streak, avoiding tying the club record. Los Angeles (7-3-1) lost back-to-back games for the first time since last September. It hasn't won in Columbus since 2011.

Higuain, in his eighth season with Columbus, got his 62nd assist on a long pass to Robinho, who sent it across goal for a redirection from Gyasi Zardes in the 27th minute. Early in the second half, Higuain connected with Zardes on a give-and-go for his first goal in 11 games.

Hector Jimenez made it 3-0 in the 66th minute by knocking home a loose ball in front of the net for his first goal in five years. It was the Crew's first three-goal game since July against the New York Red Bulls.

Los Angeles scored in the 87th when Daniel Steres tapped home Sebastian Lletget's corner kick.
