HARRISON, N.J. - Bradley Wright-Phillips scored his MLS-leading 18th goal of the season and the 10-man New York Red Bulls beat the New England Revolution 2-1 on Saturday night.

Wright-Phillips curled in a left-footed shot in the 63rd minute for his ninth goal in his last 10 games. He's a goal away from tying the single-season club record set by Juan Pablo Angel in 2007.

Matt Miazga received a red card for New York (6-6-10) in the second minute of first-half stoppage time for a late challenge of Lee Nguyen.

New York's Dax McCarty tied it at 1 in the second minute after halftime. He settled a ball outside the penalty area and chipped it over the reach of goalkeeper Bobby Shuttleworth.

Charlie Davies scored on a header in the 20th minute for New England (8-12-2). Teal Bunbury crossed the ball into the box that took a deflection to Davies at the back post.

REAL SALT LAKE 1, RAPIDS 0

COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (AP) — Nick Rimando tied the MLS record with his 112th shutout in 10-man Real Salt Lake's victory over Colorado.

Rimando needed a diving save in the 94th minute to tie the record set by Kevin Hartman in 2012.

Salt Lake (8-4-9) won the Rocky Mountain Cup by beating Colorado (8-7-6) in the first two games of the three-game, regular-season series.

Javier Morales scored in the 14th minute.

Salt Lake played nearly the entire second half a man down after Aaron Maund was handed a red card in the 46th minute for taking down Colorado's Vicente Sanchez just outside the penalty area. Wingert received a yellow card in the 34th minute and will miss the next match on an accumulation suspension.

GALAXY 3, TIMBERS 1

CARSON, Calif. (AP) — Robbie Keane scored twice to help Los Angeles beat Portland.

Keane broke a tie in the 73rd minute, beating defenders to the back post to head home Landon Donovan's left-footed service. Keane converted a penalty shot in the 85th minute to seal the victory. It was his 12th goal of the season, moving him to fourth in MLS.

The Timbers opened the scoring when Diego Valeri converted a free kick into the upper right corner from just outside the box in the 14th minute. Los Angeles nearly tied it in the 29th minute, but Gyasi Zardes' header hit the bar squarely.

The Galaxy (9-4-6) drew even in first-half stoppage time as Zardes didn't miss his next chance, heading Robbie Rogers' left-footed cross past goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts.

Portland fell to 6-7-9.

CREW 1, FIRE 1, TIE

BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. (AP) — Federico Higuain scored 10 seconds into the second half for Columbus in the Crew's tie with Chicago.

Ethan Finlay redirected a one-hopper from midfield and Fire defender Patrick Ianni overplayed the clearance attempt. Higuain gathered the loose ball, evaded Lovel Palmer and struck the ball into the left corner for his eighth goal of the season.

Mike Magee opened the scoring for the Fire in the 37th minute after Tyson Wahl conceded a penalty on a handball in the area. Goalkeeper Steve Clark guessed wrong and Magee finished low and to the right.

Sean Johnson made a couple of difficult saves in the second half for the Fire (3-5-13) to preserve their MLS-leading 13th tie of the season. The Crew (6-7-9) had won two in a row.

TORONTO FC 2, IMPACT 0

MONTREAL (AP) — Gilberto and Luke Moore scored in Toronto FC's victory over Montreal.

Gilberto scored in the 11th minute for Toronto (8-7-5) when his shot from inside the 18-yard box rang off the crossbar and landed a foot across the line. Moore made it 2-0 in the 54th minute.

Montreal (3-13-5) has lost a franchise-record six games in a row.
