CHICAGO (AP) — Cristian Arango scored two goals to bring his MLS-leading total to eight this season and 18-year-old Gavin Beavers had a career-high five saves to help Real Salt Lake beat the Chicago Fire 4-0 Saturday night.

Andrés Gómez opened the scoring in the 22nd minute, when he slipped a left-footed shot from just outside the area inside the post.

Arongo scored in the 33rd and headed home a corner kick played by Bryan Oviedo to make it 3-0 in the 37th minute. The 29-year-old Colombian scored 30 goals across two seasons with Los Angeles FC before finishing with six goals in 11 appearances for RSL in 2023.

Diego Luna capped the scoring when he ran onto a ball played by Arongo and blasted a right-footer from the top of the penalty area in the third minute of stoppage time.

Real Salt Lake (4-2-3) is unbeaten, with three wins, in its last five games.

Beavers, in his third MLS season, had his first career shutout.

Chris Brady had three saves for Chicago (2-4-3).
