HARRISON, N.J. (AP) -- Reserve forward Juan Agudelo scored a goal off a feed from Rafa Marquez in the 68th minute, lifting the New York Red Bulls to a 1-1 tie with the Vancouver Whitecaps on Saturday night.
Agudelo entered the game in the 62nd minute as a substitute and got his sixth goal of the season.
The Red Bulls (6-6-15) played down a man after Jan Gunnar Solli was ejected right before halftime and fell to 0-3-5 in their last eight. New York moved one point ahead of Portland and two ahead of D.C. United for the last playoff spot.
Davide Chiumiento scored in the 23rd minute for the Whitecaps (4-13-10), who dropped to 0-10-5 away from home.
