WASHINGTON, D.C. — Aaron Long and Daniel Royer scored and the New York Red Bulls beat D.C. United 2-0 on Saturday night to snap a four-match winless streak and give interim coach Bradley Carnell his first victory.

Long scored on header from outside the 6-yard box in the 29th minute.

Royer scored with a left-footed volley from 11 yards out off a cross from Jason Pendant.

It was Royer’s first goal since March 1.

Ryan Meara had four saves for the Red Bulls (4-5-2), including a pair against Julian Gressel and Rivas in quick succession.

But Meara left in the 62nd minute with an apparent right knee injury.
