HOUSTON (AP) — Alberth Elis had two goals and an assist to help the Houston Dynamo beat the New York Red Bulls 4-0 on Wednesday night to snap a three-game losing streak.
Houston, which came in winless in its past five, won for the first time since beating D.C. United 2-1 on May 18.
Elis, on the right side, made a sliding pass around two defenders to Mauro Manotas who first-timed a side-footer from point-blank range to make it 1-0 in the 39th minute.
Tomás Martínez ripped a left-footer just inside the post from well outside the area in the 56th before Elis added goals in the 72nd minute and in stoppage time to cap the scoring.
New York’s Michael Murillo and Alejandro Romero Gamarra, and Houston’s Maynor Figueroa, were shown red cards in the final minutes.
