CHESTER, Pa. (AP) Marco Fabian and Anthony Fontana scored and the Philadelphia Union beat the Chicago Fire 2-0 on Saturday night to increase their Eastern Conference lead.

Fabian opened the scoring for the Union (11-6-6) in the 12th minute with a low-driving right-footed blast into the left corner from long distance. The 19-year-old Fontana entered as a substitute in the 61st minute and scored in a deflection four minutes later.

The Fire (5-10-8) extended their winless streak to four games.

Vancouver 1 San Jose 3

Chris Wondolowski had a goal and an assist and the San Jose Earthquakes beat the slumping Vancouver Whitecaps 3-1 on Saturday night.

Valeri Qazaishvili and Magnus Eriksson also scored for the Earthquakes (10-7-4).

Doneil Henry opened the scoring for Vancouver (4-11-8) in the seventh minute. The Whitecaps have lost five straight.

San Jose tied it in the 16th minute, with Wondolowski stepping up Qazaishvili's strike.

Colorado 1 NYCFC 2

Alexandru Mitrita scored in the 83rd minute and New York City FC beat the 10-man Colorado Rapids 2-1 in a game delayed by severe weather Saturday night.

Colorado (5-11-5) went down a man in the 33rd minute when Sebastian Anderson was sent off for a reckless tackle. In the sixth minute, Anderson finished Jonathan Lewis' cross to become the youngest Rapids player to score at 16 years, 11 months and 12 days.

Heber tied it in the 40th minute for NYCFC (8-3-8). Heber found a wide open space in the 6-yard box to chest trap Maxi Moralez's pass and volley it past goalkeeper Tim Howard.

Colorado nearly held off the City attack for the entire second half until Mitrita gathered Lalas Abubakar's attempted clearance and curled in a right-footed shot from beyond the penalty arc for the winner.

Howard, who made his 1,750th career save in MLS and Premier League, left in the 45th minute due to a strained right calf.

Houston 3 Toronto 1

Tommy McNamara, Tomas Martinez and Mauro Manotas scored and the Houston Dynamo beat Toronto FC 3-1 on Saturday night to snap an eight-game road losing streak.

Houston (9-9-3) had lost three straight overall and was 2-8-2 in its previous 12 games. Toronto (8-9-5) had won two in a row.

McNamara opened the scoring in the fourth minute off a pass from Memo Rodriguez. Martinez connected in the 23rd, and Manotas made it 3-0 in the 57th. Jozy Altidore scored for Toronto in the 75th.
