TORONTO -- Patrick Nyarko scored in the 58th minute, and the Chicago Fire beat winless Toronto FC 3-2 on Saturday.
Toronto (0-6-0) is tied for the second-worst start in MLS history. Kansas City opened the 1999 season 0-7-0. Toronto has a combined 1-7-2 record in CONCACAF Champions League and MLS play this season, getting outscored 23-11.
Dominic Oduro and Gonzalo Segares also scored for Chicago (2-1-2). Reggie Lambe scored both Toronto goals.
Oduro's through ball to Nyarko split the Toronto defense to set up the winning score. Goalkeeper Milo Kocic rushed out, but Nyarko dribbled past him and sent the ball home.
