ATLANTA (AP) Luciano Acosta broke a tie in the 36th minute, Sebastien Le Toux had the only second-half goal and D.C. United beat Atlanta United 3-1 on Sunday for the Washington team's first road victory.

D.C. United (3-3-2) snapped a four-game road winless run. Atlanta (3-3-2) played a home game for the first time since March 18.

D.C. United tied it at 1 in the 25th minute on Michael Parkhurst's own goal. Lamar Neagle intercepted a defensive header, raced down the left side and his pass across the goal was knocked in by Parkhurst. Eleven minutes later, Acosta took a thrown-in from near midfield, dribbled past four defenders and slotted a shot inside the near post for a 2-1 lead.
