HARRISON, N.J. (AP) -- Bradley Wright-Phillips scored his MLS-leading 25th goal of the season to help the New York Red Bulls beat Toronto FC 3-1 on Saturday night.
Wright-Phillips is two goals away from tying the MLS single record -- with two games to play.
New York (12-9-11) is fourth in the Eastern Conference, while sixth-place Toronto (11-14-7) is six points back of Columbus for the final playoff spot.
New York scored all three goals in the first half. Wright-Phillips got his in the 26th minute when he slotted home Kosuke Kimura's cross. In the 35th minute, Ruben Bover Izquierdo tracked down a rebound and slid in his first MLS goal. Dax McCarty redirected a deflected shot in the 44th minute.
Toronto's Jonathan Osorio tapped in Justin Morrow's cross in the 55th minute. Nick Hagglund received a red card in the 86th minute for a rough challenge.
