New York Red Bulls (3-4-0, 9 points) earned a 2-1 win against Orlando City SC (3-1-3, 12 pts) on Saturday afternoon at Red Bull Arena.
Following the 2-1 win at home, the Red Bulls continued to have the best home record in MLS since Red Bull Arena opened in 2010, with the most home wins (115) and points (380).
New York extended their home winning streak to three matches for the first time since 2019, which ran from June 1 to July 14.
New York won the ball in a challenge and Patryk Klimala delivered a cross to the far post, which found Caden Clark to open the scoring for the Red Bulls.
The Red Bulls earned a free kick in the 60th minute after Clark got brought down right outside the box. Cristian Cásseres, Jr. scored the free kick to double New York's lead.
Orlando City found a goal after Kyle Smith delivered a long ball to Tesho Akindele, who laid it down for Silvester van der Water, who scored late in the match.
Clark scored his team-high fourth goal of the season and surpassed his total goals scored from last season. He has scored in all four home matches this season.
Klimala recorded his first career MLS assist.
Cásseres, Jr. tallied his third goal of the season and his second at Red Bull Arena this season.
Klimala and left back John Tolkin both made their first career MLS starts.
The Red Bulls earned their first victory against Orlando City SC at Red Bull Arena since October 28, 2018.
The Red Bulls extend their lead in the all-time series against Orlando City SC to 7-5-2.
