Chicharito took the lead back to the Milky Way in the 15th minute, receiving a cross from Víctor Vázquez in the area and ending his left foot between the legs of Brazilian goalkeeper Carlos Coronel.
The Mexican finished a trio in the 60th minute, which was a shot with a right foot after Red Bull’s poor defense rebound. Chicharito withdrew from the exchange in the 78th minute.
New York scored 3-2 with a header from Cásseres in the 63rd minute.
