Christian Ramirez scored his 11th goal of the season, Bobby Shuttleworth had four saves and Minnesota United beat D.C. United 4-0 Saturday night to snap a five-game winless streak.
    
Ramirez scored in the seventh minute to end Minnesota's goal drought at 358 minutes.
    
Shuttleworth has five shutouts this season for Minnesota (6-12-4).
    
Ramirez slipped behind the defense and put away a half-volley off a long, arcing pass from Kevin Molino for the first goal. Abu Danladi first-timed a feed from Molino just inside the post in the 40th and Jared Jeffrey's own goal put Minnesota up 3-0 in the 58th minute. Miguel Ibarra added a goal in stoppage time.
    
D.C. United (5-14-3) has lost six in a row - the longest such streak since losing a franchise-record seven straight in 2013 - and has been outscored 17-6 during that stretch.
