Red Bulls extend unbeaten streak to 10, beat Whitecaps 1-0

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - Bradley Wright-Phillips scored in the 50th minute and the New York Red Bulls beat the Vancouver Whitecaps on Saturday 1-0 on Saturday to extend their club-record unbeaten streak to 10 games.
 
The Red Bulls (12-9-7) moved into a tie for second place in the Eastern Conference with Toronto FC.
 
Wright-Phillips scored his 17th goal to tie for the Major League Soccer scoring lead. He chipped a shot home after Whitecaps defender Jordan Harvey bounced a clearing attempt off him while falling down in the box.
 
The Whitecaps (8-13-7) are winless in eight games. Vancouver coach Carl Robinson was ejected shortly before halftime for protesting a throw-in awarded to New York and faces an automatic one-game suspension.
