Houston (8-7-5) dropped to 0-7-3 on road.

Minnesota dominated the possession, controlling the ball for 66 percent of the time, but managed just four total shots, two of which were saved by Houston goalkeeper Tyler Deric.

Deric has two shutouts this season and 17 overall.

Houston had shots in 80th and 84th minutes, but Vicente Sanchez missed a header high from the center of the box and Jose Escalante misfired right on a long-range shot from a difficult angle.

Christian Ramirez had the best chance late for Minnesota, but his shot from the right side of the six-yard box was saved by Deric.
