MLS Scoreboard: Ruidiaz magic earns Sounders another road win, Atlanta United wins third straight, and more

By

Raul Ruidiaz began Wednesday night on the bench for the Seattle Sounders as Brian Schmetzer looked to rotate his squad a bit, but it didn’t take long for the Peruvian MLS MVP candidate to make an impact when he was finally unleashed on FC Dallas.

Ruidiaz scored just seconds after entering the match to help give the Sounders a 1-0 road win against FC Dallas at Toyota Stadium, Seattle’s third straight road win.

Ruidiaz wasn’t the only MLS MVP candidate to deliver goal-scoring magic on Wednesday. Sporting Kansas City’s Daniel Salloi helped his team avoid a home defeat when his stoppage-time finish helped earn a 1-1 draw against the Portland Timbers.

Late-game heroics are becoming a habit for Inter Miami, which found a late goal yet again to beat the Chicago Fire, with Rodolfo Pizarro helping the Herons win their third straight home match.

Wednesday night’s loaded MLS schedule also saw Atlanta United win its third straight match, the Philadelphia Union halted red-hot New York City FC thanks to an Alejandro Bedoya winner, and the New York Red Bulls kept the Columbus Crew’s brutal slump going courtesy of a John Tolkin winner in a 1-0 victory.
