Kansas City, KS (Sports Network) - Houston Dynamo goalie Tony Caig made five
saves to post a shutout in his first career start in Major League Soccer, but
the two-time defending champions remained winless after a 0-0 draw with Kansas

The 6-foot Caig made three saves against Kansas City's Claudio Lopez, who is
one of six designated players in the league.
Houston (0-1-2) has failed to score in two of its three games. The Dynamo lost
to New England, 3-0, in their first game of the season.
Dwayne De Rosario and Brad Davis each had two shots on goal for Houston, but
Wizards goalie Kevin Hartman matched Caig for his second shutout of the year.

The scoreless draw was the first in MLS this season.
Houston visits Los Angeles on April 19 in search of its first win. Kansas City
