Crew sweep aside RBNY as "Let's go get third" becomes playoff mantra

Without stepping onto the field, the Columbus Crew clinched their first playoff berth since 2011 with Toronto FC's draw against Montreal Saturday.

But a day later in New York, the Crew showed no signs of being satisfied with sneaking into the postseason. Instead, they blasted the New York Red Bulls 3-1 to rise to fourth in the East, level on points (but losing in a tiebreaker) with Sporting Kansas City for the third seed with just one match remaining in the season.
