Toronto FC vs. D.C. United: Three takeaways

Burned by goals at the death the previous two weeks, Toronto FC put on its version of "The Late Show" on Saturday evening at Audi Field.

Jonathan Osorio's goal in the 89th minute helped TFC earn a valuable road point in a 2-2 draw against D.C. United, snapping their five-match losing skid in the process.
