CARSON, Calif. (AP) — Sean Franklin scored in the 70th minute and Los Angeles beat the Columbus Crew 1-0, extending the Galaxy’s unbeaten streak to 13 games on Wednesday night.

David Beckham’s free kick bounced off a wall of defenders and back into the middle of the pitch. Franklin, a cornerback playing in his 86th game, then hit a low shot from 25 yards out for his first Major League Soccer goal.

The Galaxy (11-2-9) improved to 7-0-6 in league play since a 2-1 road loss to FC Dallas on May 1. Los Angeles has also not been defeated in any of its 11 home games.

The Crew (7-6-7) were kept on the defensive with the Galaxy attempting 15 corner kicks.

Beckham was given a yellow card in stoppage time for not attempting a free kick in a timely manner.
