CHESTER, Pa. (AP) - Julian Carranza scored three goals, Andre Blake had three saves and Philadelphia tied the MLS record for largest margin of victory in the Union's 7-0 win over D.C. United on Friday night.
Philadelphia set the franchise record for single-game goals and its seven goals were one shy of the MLS record set by the LA Galaxy in 1998.
Carranza, a 22-year-old Argentine striker acquired from Inter Miami in December, started his hat trick for the Union (8-2-9) with a pair of goals in the first half, and scored his third one in the 72nd minute.
Mikael Uhre - a 27-year-old forward in his first MLS season - and Alejandro Bedoya each had two goals in their first MLS multi-goal game. Bedoya has a career-high five goals this season, his sixth.
The Union outshot United (5-10-2) 19-9, with 10 shots on goal to three for United.
Blake saved all three shots he faced for the Union. Rafael Romo saved three of the 10 shots he faced for United.
These teams take to the pitch again Wednesday, with the Union visiting Inter Miami while United hosts the Columbus Crew.
