Ruiz Breaks Tie, Union Top Fire 2-1

CHESTER, Pa. (AP) — Carlos Ruiz scored the go-ahead goal in the 75th minute to help the Philadelphia Union beat the Chicago Fire 2-1 on Saturday night.

Philadelphia (5-3-2) moved into first place in the Eastern Conference, one point ahead of New York. The Red Bulls tied Houston 2-2 on Saturday night.

Ruiz scored his team-high third goal of the season, beating goalkeeper Jon Conway from 30 yards.

Philadelphia scored more than one goal in a game for the first time this season. The Union, 4-0-2 at home, had an MLS-low six goals in their first nine games.

Union rookie Michael Farfan scored his first MLS goal in the 64th minute, and Dominic Oduro tied it for Chicago (1-4-5) in the 68th minute. The Fire dropped to 0-3-3 on the road.
