Josef Martinez scored a hat-trick as Eastern Conference leaders Atlanta stayed top via a 3-1 win at home against nine-man Philadelphia.
A first-half penalty triggered a wild sequence for the Union, who had Alejandro Bedoya and Haris Medunjanin both sent off for arguing the referee's decision in the 19th minute.
Martinez converted the spot-kick before completing his fifth hat-trick in the second half as Atlanta maintained their two-point lead atop the east following New York City's 3-0 victory over struggling Orlando City.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic – who scored twice in a 3-2 loss to Dallas last time out – started on the bench in LA Galaxy's 1-1 draw at Portland Timbers, while Sebastian Giovinco scored a stunning free-kick as Toronto surrendered a three-goal lead in their 3-3 draw against Columbus Crew.
