The New York Red Bulls (8-7-3, 27 pts) fell to the Houston Dynamo on Wednesday night at BBVA Stadium in Houston, 4-0.
The Red Bulls are now 2-4-2 on the road this season while Houston remains undefeated (7-0-3) at home.
The Dynamo took a 1-0 lead into the half after a 39th minute goal from Mauro Manotas. Tomas Martinez added a second early in the second half (56'), and Houston got two goals late from Alberth Elis.
New York used a rotated lineup for the midweek match. New York was without regular starters Aaron Long and Kemar Lawrence (Gold Cup) while offensive leaders Kaku and Danny Royer were rested to start the match.
Michael Amir Murillo returned from Gold Cup duty with Panama and started. Murillo was issued a second yellow in the 83rd minute and will miss the Red Bulls next match in Atlanta.
Kaku entered the match as a second half sub and was issued a red card in stoppage time. Per Opta, the red card was issued for violent conduct.
Bradley Wright-Phillips made his second-straight appearance after returning from injury. BWP played 17 minutes after playing 23 minutes against Chicago on Friday night.
The Red Bulls were shutout for the first time since April 20 and just the fifth time in 22 matches across all competitions.
Head coach Chris Armas is now 20-10-6 all-time at the helm and 6-6-5 away from Red Bull Arena.
New York is 49-41-22 all-time in the month of July. New York has scored 182 goals in June and allowed 166.
The Red Bulls face a quick turnaround, heading to Atlanta on Sunday to take on Atlanta United FC.
