ATLANTA (AP) – Brazil’s Júnior Urso scored his first MLS goal, Chris Mueller added another and Orlando City beat Atlanta United 3-1 on Saturday.

Orlando thus climbed to fourth place in the Eastern Conference, with 14 points.
Urso, who is in his first MLS season at 31, scored with a header off a Mueller corner kick to open the scoring in the 13th minute.

Brooks Lennon scored with a header from the center of the area after a cross by Mexican Jürgen Damm for Atlanta (3-4-0) in the 83rd.
Urso stole the ball from Argentine Pity Martínez and sent the ball to Luís Almeida de Cunha for the last goal of the match at 86.
Atlanta is eighth in the East, with nine points.
