Fabrice-Jean Picault scored twice in the first half and added a late assist in the Philadelphia Union's 5-1 victory over Minnesota United on Saturday night.
Picault made it 3-0 in the 23rd minute, scoring on a well-played through ball from Keegan Rosenberry. Picault's curler in the 44th minute - his 10th goal of the season - gave the Union (15-12-5) a four-goal lead going into the half.
Cory Burke opened the scoring in the eighth minute with a roller from beyond the area. Alejandro Bedoya tapped in Rosenberry's cross in the 17th minute to double the lead.
Ilsinho took Picault's pass and drilled home a one-hopper from 30 yards out to cap the scoring in the 79th minute.
Darwin Quintero scored his 11th goal of the season for Minnesota United (11-17-3) in the 54th minute.
The Union moved two points ahead of the Columbus Crew into fourth place in the Eastern Conference standings.
