HARRISON, N.J. (AP) Marc Rzatkowski scored two goals after the 71st minute to rally the New York Red Bulls to a 3-2 win over Sporting Kansas City on Saturday night.
Rzatkowski entered as a substitute in the 60th minute for Alejandro Romero Gamarra and made it 2-all for the Red Bulls (11-5-2) with his first MLS goal - a left-footed shot from inside the penalty arc to finish Tyler Adams' pass in the 72nd. Rzatkowski settled Sean Davis' pass in the 79th and sent a rocket into the upper left corner that got through despite a deflection of goalkeeper Tim Melia.
Roger Espinoza gave Sporting KC (9-5-6) a 2-1 lead in the 51st minute with a rising blast from just beyond the right side of the area.
Bradley Wright-Phillips and Johnny Russell traded goals early in the game. Wright-Phillips finished Gamarra's pass with a chip over the onrushing Melia in the fourth minute and Russell punched home Graham Zusi's cross from close range in the eighth. >> Read more
