Carranza’s hat trick helps Union to 6-0 win over DC United

WASHINGTON (AP) — Julian Carranza’s hat trick and Andre Blake’s two saves lifted the Philadelphia Union to a win over D.C. United on Saturday by a score of 6-0.

Carranza recorded his hat trick entirely in the second half for the Union (14-4-9), capped by a goal in the 74th minute. Carranza also recorded one assist in the game.

The Union also got one goal each from Cory Burke, Mikael Uhre and Daniel Gazdag.

The 22-year-old Carranza — who scored three goals in his first two seasons combined, both with Inter Miami — has 12 goals this season, including two hat tricks.

Blake saved the two shots he faced for the Union. Rafael Romo had six saves for United.

Up next for the Union is a matchup Saturday with the Colorado Rapids at home, while United visits Atlanta United on Sunday.
