Gehrig, Higuaín named to SI's Team of the Week

By Cody Sharrett

Following Saturday's 2-0 win over the Chicago Fire, Crew defender Eric Gehrig and forward Federico Higuaín were named to Sports Illustrated's Week 12 Best XI. In his first appearance of the season, the fourth-year defender Gehrig stepped into central defense to help the Black & Gold to their second shutout of 2014 in the victory. Coming off MLS Player of the Week honors, Higuaín continued a stand-out May with assists to Ethan Finlay and Jairo Arrieta to lift the Crew at home.
