CHESTER, Pa. — Alejandro Romero Gamarra scored on a second-half penalty kick, Luis Robles had his 13th shutout and the New York Red Bulls beat the Philadelphia Union 1-0 on Sunday to stay in contention for the Supporters' Shield with one game to play.
A Red Bulls corner kick resulted in a handball by Alejandro Bedoya after a video review, setting up Gamarra for his sixth goal.
The Red Bulls (21-7-5), winners of four straight and unbeaten in five, go into the last game next weekend one point behind Atlanta for the best record in the regular season.
Philadelphia (15-13-5), which had three wins during a four-match unbeaten streak, was hoping to clinch the No. 3 seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs with wins in its last two games.
Robels made two saves as the Union only put two of 14 shots on target.
