HARRISON, N.J. — Thierry Henry scored his first goal since April 28 to lead the New York Red Bulls to a 1-0 victory over the Chicago Fire on Wednesday.

The rare weekday afternoon game was played in record-breaking 106-degree heat, the hottest July 18 ever recorded in New Jersey.

In the 71st minute, Henry blasted a left-footed shot that went in off the right goalpost for his 10th goal of the season.

At 6-0-3, New York is the only MLS team that's undefeated at home.

DYNAMO 2, SPORTING KC 1: At Houston, Calen Carr scored two and Houston extended its unbeaten streak to five.

CHIVAS USA 1, TIMBERS 0: At Carson, Calif., Miller Bolanos scored his first MLS goal as Chivas USA moved it four points in front of the Timbers.

TORONTO FC 2, RAPIDS 1: At Toronto, newly acquired forward Andrew Wiedeman scored his first MLS goal in the 68th minute to lift Toronto FC. The 22-year-old was playing in just his 10th career MLS game since coming over to Toronto last Friday in the deal that sent Julian de Guzman to FC Dallas.

IMPACT 2, REVOLUTION 1: At Montreal, Sanna Nyassi volleyed the winner in the 68th minute as Montreal leapfrogged N.E. to move into sixth place in the East.

GALAXY 2, WHITECAPS 2: At Vancouver, second-half Galaxy substitute Jose Villarreal scored in the 87th minute.

EARTHQUAKES 2, FC DALLAS 1: At Santa Clara, Calif., FC Dallas' Jair Benitez missed a penalty in stoppage time as the first-place San Jose barely held on to the victory.
