HARRISON, N.J. (AP) — Bradley Wright-Phillips scored two of New York's three goals in a 10-minute span and the Red Bulls rallied to beat Orlando City 3-2 on Sunday night to snap a four-game losing streak.

Wright-Phillips, fifth in MLS with 17 goals last season, scored his first goal of the season in the 69th minute to put New York up 2-1. He poked in a left-footer from the edge of the 6-yard box about six minutes later, off a perfect cross Lloyd Sam, to double the advantage.

Cyle Larin tapped in a feed from Rafael Ramos to give Orlando City (2-2-3) a 1-0 lead in the third minute.

After Sacha Kljestan threaded a pass through the legs of Orlando defender Tommy Redding, Mike Grella tied it in the 65th.

New York's Karl Ouimette headed in an own-goal off an Orlando City corner in the 84th minute to cap the scoring.

The Red Bulls (2-6-0), who won the Supporters' Shield last season, came into the game with an MLS-low three points and the league's worst goal differential at minus-10.


SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Chris Wondolowski scored on a penalty kick and David Bingham had five saves to help San Jose beat Sporting Kansas City.

Wondolowski scored his MLS-leading seventh goal of the season in the 58th minute after Simon Dawkins drew a likely goal-saving penalty in the box on Kansas City goalkeeper Tim Melia.

San Jose improved to 4-2-2, and Sporting KC dropped to 4-4-0.
