Kaka scores, Orlando City grabs first home win with rout of Galaxy
ORLANDO, Florida (AP) —
Orlando City held its first lead at home — in six games — in front of 40,122 fans.
Eric Avila's header put Orlando City on the board in the 12th minute after Rafael Ramos crossed a ball to Brek Shea at the far post, who headed it back in front of goal to an open Avila. In the 34th minute, rookie Cyle Larin scored after a nice back-and-forth breakaway with Kaka for his fourth goal of the year.
In the second half, Kaka scored from a penalty in the 56th minute after he was tripped up in the area by goalkeeper Jaime Penedo. Darwin Ceren made it 4-0 in the 73rd on a deflected shot.
In the day's other game, Zach Pfeffer scored in second-half stoppage time as the Philadelphia Union beat D.C. United 1-0 to end a four-game losing streak.
Philadelphia ended its five-game winless streak, while D.C. United, the Eastern Conference leader, had its eight-game undefeated streak stopped.
Fabinho sent in a cross in the 93rd minute that Sebastien Le Toux let play through his legs. Pfeffer settled the ball with his right and slotted a left-footed shot past goalkeeper Bill Hamid at the near post. It was Philadelphia's first goal since April 25.
