Brian White slotted in a sliding finish of Kaku's cross in the 32nd minute, and the New York Red Bulls used some desperate defending and kind bounces off the woodwork to see out a 1-0 win over Orlando City SC on Sunday evening at Exploria Stadium.
Luis Robles made four saves to preserve his fifth shutout of the season and help the Red Bulls move above D.C. United into third place in the Eastern Conference on the second tiebreak of goal difference.
Carlos Ascues, Tesho Akindele and Sacha Kljestan all hit the woodwork after halftime for Orlando, which lost at home for the sixth time this season, just three days after mostly a second unit gutted out an impressive 1-1 draw at the Portland Timbers.
