NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Marino Hinestroza scored his first MLS goal in the 79th minute to help the Columbus Crew tie Nashville SC 2-2 Saturday night.

Hinestroza, a 21-year-old rookie, capped the scoring with a header off a chip-shot cross played by Yaw Yeboah.

Sean Zawadzki opened the scoring when he netted his first goal of the season for Columbus (3-1-2) in the 17th minute. Zawadzki hovered near the far corner of the area and then slipped in front of defender at the last minute to head home a corner kick played by Diego Rossi.

Hany Mukhtar nonchalantly side-footed a volley off a entry played by Jacob Shaffelburg into the net in stoppage time. Aníbal Godoy put away a — from the center of the area a couple minutes later to give Nashville (1-1-4) a 2-1 lead at halftime.

Columbus had 64% possession but had four shots on target to Nashville’s five.

Elliot Joseph Panicco had three saves for the Crew.

Patrick Schulte stopped two shots for Nashville.
