He doubled the advantage in the 64th minute with his fourth goal of the year as the Red Bulls were down a man following a red card issued to Lloyd Sam. On the play, Casey collected the rebound of a Keon Daniel shot and sent it past goalkeeper Luis Robles.

Antoine Hoppenot also scored for Philadelphia (7-5-4), which broke a five-game losing to New York and moved into a second-place tie with the Red Bulls at 25 points.

New York (7-6-4) fell to 6-3-0 all-time against the Union.
