HARRISON, N.J. (AP) - Bradley Wright-Phillips scored two goals and the 10-man New York Red Bulls beat expansion New York City FC 2-1 on Sunday night in the inaugural New York Derby.

New York (4-1-4) bounced back after suffering its first loss of the season on May 2. NYCFC (1-6-3) had its winless stretch reach eight games with a fourth straight loss.

Wright-Phillips opened the scoring in the fourth minute. Lloyd Sam used two cutbacks in the area to free himself for a chipped cross to an open Wright-Phillips in front of goal.

The Red Bulls’ Matt Miazga was sent off in the 36th minute after receiving two yellow cards 18 minutes apart.

Wright-Phillips scored his second in the 52nd minute for his fifth goal of the season. Lloyd Sam led a long counter attack, crossed the ball to the left wing and Sacha Kljestan fed Wright-Phillips for an easy tap in.

NYCFC’s Patrick Mullins scored in the 76th minute after the Red Bulls’ failed clearance deep in their area.


TORONTO (AP) - Boniek Garcia and Will Bruin scored and Houston spoiled Toronto’s home debut in new-look BMO Field.

Houston (3-4-4) snapped a four-game winless streak with its first road victory of the year.

Jozy Altidore scored for Toronto (3-5-0).

The game drew a BMO Field-record crowd of 30,226, although there were some empty seats in the new upper tier in the East Stand. An MLSE spokesman said not all the tickets were put on sale because of an issue with the railing.

Garcia opened the scoring in the 44th minute, and Bruin made it 2-0 in the 53rd. Altidore scored in the 77th.
