FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -- Carlos Ruiz and Carlos Valdes each scored within a 13-minute span early in the first half to lead the Philadelphia Union to a 3-0 win over the New England Revolution on Sunday night.
Philadelphia (8-4-7) completed its recent three-match road trip unbeaten (1-0-2), extending its unbeaten streak to five matches (2-0-3) and overtaking New York for first place in the Eastern Conference with two matches in hand.
