The New York Red Bulls (5-6-2, 17 pts) earned their second road win with a 4-1 victory over Inter Miami CF (3-8-2, 11 pts) on Wednesday night at Inter Miami CF Stadium.
New York improved to 2-1-1 on the road and moved into a tie with NYCFC for sixth place with 17 points in the Eastern Conference.

New York earned a penalty kick in the 14th minute and Mandela Egbo converted to grab the game's first goal.
Failed clear in the 39th minute led to Matias Pellegrini sending a pass into the box for Juan Agudelo and beating David Jensen on his left to equalize.
Forcing a turnover inside Miami's defensive third, a tic-tac-toe play from Florian Valot at the top of the box to Omir Fernandez and then Brian White, who hits a low liner to give New York a 2-1 lead.
On a counterattack, Tom Barlow rocketed a shot at Luis Robles, who made the initial save, but Ben Mines picked up the rebound and finished to the near post to double the lead, 3-1, in the 85th minute.
With the game winding down, Daniel Royer, who came off the bench, used his only shot of the game to tally his third goal of the year and New York's fourth of the game.
Egbo, White and Mines all tallied their first goal of the season.
