TORONTO (AP) Sebastian Giovinco, Nicolas Hasler and Jozy Altidore scored and MLS-leading Toronto FC beat the Philadelphia Union 3-0 on Wednesday night to run its unbeaten streak to eight games and remain undefeated at home this season.

Playing in front of a capacity crowd of 28,645 fans at BMO Field, Toronto improved to 15-3-8 and 10-0-3 at home.

With eight games left in the regular season, the Reds - who haven't lost since a 3-1 setback in Dallas on July 1 - remain on pace for the most points in MLS history. Toronto has 53 points, 15 shy of the league record set by the Los Angeles Galaxy in 1998.
