Santos leads Union to 5-0 rout of Toronto, first-place tie

Sergio Santos scored three times, and the Philadelphia Union beat Toronto FC 5-0 on Saturday.

Philadelphia (12-3-5) moved into a first-place tie with Toronto (12-3-5) atop Major League Soccer. The Union also improved to 7-0-0 at home this season.

It was Toronto’s first defeat in 10 games.

Santos scored in the 27th, 63rd and 68th minutes. He entered with four goals on the season.
