Przybylko’s PK goal helps Union beat Nashville 1-0

CHESTER, Pa. (AP) — Kacper Przybylko scored on a penalty kick, Andre Blake had his career-high 11th shutout of the season and the Philadelphia Union beat Nashville 1-0 on Saturday night.

Nashville’s Taylor Washington was called for a handball in the box and Przybylko converted from the spot in the 18th minute.

Philadelphia (13-8-10) has won four straight home matches including shutouts in the last three.

Nashville (11-4-16) lost for the first time since a 2-1 defeat by Toronto FC on Sept. 18. The club is tied with the New England Revolution — the points leader in all of MLS — for fewest losses this season.

Blake finished with one save.
