HARRISON, New Jersey — Bradley Wright-Phillips had two goals and an assist in the first 12 minutes, and the New York Red Bulls beat the sliding New England Revolution 4-1 on Saturday night.

Wright-Phillips headed home Lloyd Sam's cross in the fourth minute, and then helped set up Sam's low hard finish into the left corner five minutes later. Wright-Phillips capped the flurry with a shot that looked much like Sam's goal, giving the Red Bulls a 3-0 lead.

It was Wright-Phillips' eighth multigoal game of his career.

Andy Dorman got one back for the Revolution (6-9-6) in the 37th minute. New England has dropped five in a row.

Brooklyn native Anthony Wallace also scored for the Red Bulls (7-6-5) in the 56th minute.

Red Bulls assistant Denis Hamlett stepped in for coach Jesse Marsch, who served a one-game suspension due to a red card in last Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Columbus Crew.
