Justin Meram and Ola Kamara scored, and Zack Steffen made four saves to help the Columbus Crew beat Toronto FC 2-1 on Saturday night.

Meram put Columbus (4-2-1) in front for good in the 44th minute, poking Alex Crognale’s header – off a corner kick by Federico Higuain – into the net with the outside of his right foot.

Jozy Altidore gave Toronto (1-1-4) a 1-0 lead in the 21st, heading home a corner kick by Victor Vazquez. Kamara tied it about 16 minutes later, tapping in a perfect feed from Niko Hansen.

The 22-year-old Steffen tied his career high with four saves – including a sliding stop of Altidore in the 24th minute and a diving, right-handed save moments later.

TFC outshot the Crew 19-11.
