CHESTER, Pa. -- Jack McInerney scored his league-leading eighth goal in the third minute and the Philadelphia Union made it stand up in a 1-0 victory over the Chicago Fire on Saturday night.

McInerney headed home a corner kick from Sebastien Le Toux for Philadelphia (5-4-3), which beat the Fire 1-0 for the second time in a week. The Union also won 1-0 at Chicago last Saturday.

The Fire played short-handed for much of the second half after Wells Thompson received his second yellow card -- and an automatic ejection -- in the 62nd.

Chicago (2-7-1) lost its third game in a row to fall to 0-4-1 on the road.

The Union improved to 2-2-2 at home with their first victory in Philadelphia since a 1-0 win over New England on March 16.
