The Red Bulls and Vancouver Whitecaps FC  played to a 2-2 draw on Wednesday at Red Bull Arena.

The Red Bulls earned four out of six points on their two-game homestand, as they beat Atlanta 1-0 on Sunday. They are unbeaten in their last three matches (2-0-1) and have moved into fifth place in the Eastern Conference with a record of 5-5-3, with 18 points.

Vancouver got on the board first when defender Scott Sutter got them a goal in the 29th minute following a counterattack.
It didn't take long for the Red Bulls to respond minutes later off a set piece as Kaku swung a pass into the box.
Kaku' pass was headed towards the net by Amro Tarek and then headed by Brian White for the equalizer in the 37th minute.
White recorded his third career MLS goal and second tally in the last three matches. The Flemington, N.J., native has tallied a point in four of the six league matches he has appeared in.
Minutes into the second half, White sent a pass across the six-yard box, which was redirected by Vancouver's Andy Rose for an Own Goal in the 55th for a 2-1 lead.
In the 61st minute, Red Bulls defender Sean Nealis was called for a handball to give Vancouver a penalty kick. Fredy Montero took the PK and finished to the right side to even the score, 2-2.
Tarek, who tallied his first goal as a Red Bull against the Galaxy on May 4, recorded his first career MLS assist on White's goal in the 37th minute.
Kaku tallied his second assist of the season and 16th career league helper.
Red Bulls Captain and goalkeeper Luis Robles recorded a season-high five saves to help secure the tie.
The Red Bulls will have another quick turnaround as they travel to face FC Cincinnati on Saturday, May 25 at 7:30 p.m. for their third game in seven days.
