Iván Angulo gave Orlando City an early lead when he took passes from Wilder Cartagena and César Araújo in the 18th minute and scored his third goal of the season.

Torres made it 2-0 with a PK goal in the 52nd minute. Torres' goal came five minutes after New York's Andrés Reyes was sent off with a red card, forcing the Red Bulls to play a man down the rest of the match.

Torres added his fourth goal of the campaign when he scored unassisted in the 72nd minute.

Pedro Gallese stopped two shots to earn his fourth clean sheet of the season for Orlando City. Carlos Coronel finished with two saves for the Red Bulls.

The Red Bulls saw a three-match win streak at home end. The Red Bulls entered play having conceded just six goals at home this season. It was the first time New York yielded multiple goals in 10 home matches.

New York had a 14-7 advantage in shots but five of Orlando's were on goal to just two for the Red Bulls.

Orlando City improves to 4-1-2 on the road this season.

Orlando City returns home to host the Colorado Rapids on Saturday. The Red Bulls are idle.
