Miami loses Pozuelo to red card; Red Bulls rally for 3-1 win

HARRISON, N.J. (AP) — Daniel Edelman scored early in the second half and the New York Red Bulls took advantage of a first-half red card on Inter Miami’s Alejandro Pozuelo to post a 3-1 victory on Saturday.

Gonzalo Higuaín staked Inter Miami to a 1-0 lead in the 19th minute with his team-leading ninth goal of the season. Higuaín has contributed to a goal in four straight matches, tying Lewis Morgan’s club record set during the 2020 season.

The tide turned after Pozuelo, who had accounted for a goal in three straight matches, was sent off in the 29th minute.

Morgan, now playing for the Red Bulls, knotted the score in the 43rd minute with his team-high 12th goal of the campaign.

Edelman gave the Red Bulls (12-8-8) the lead for good eight minutes into the second half with his first goal this season. Caden Clark added an insurance goal — also his first — in the 74th minute, four minutes after teammate Kyle Duncan was tagged with a red card.

Carlos Miguel Coronel had four saves for New York. The Red Bulls have four wins in 14 home matches this season.

Drake Callender saved five shots for Inter Miami (10-11-6), which came in having scored at least one point in five straight matches (3-0-2).
