SEATTLE — A shot by Victor Rodriguez that was knocked in for an own goal in the 83rd minute put the Seattle Sounders ahead, and Nico Lodeiro's goal in stoppage time secured a 4-2 victory over the New York Red Bulls on Sunday.

The Sounders (14-9-7) remained in contention for second place in the MLS Western Conference.

New York (12-13-5) had come back from an early 2-0 deficit, getting the equalizer from Kaku in the 67th minute.

The go-ahead goal came when Rodriguez, playing outside the penalty area on the left side, lofted the ball toward the goal, and New York midfielder Sean Davis leaped toward it. The ball deflected off Davis' right leg into the back right corner of the net.

Lodeiro scored on a breakaway in the third minute of stoppage time. The goal was initially waved off by an offside call. But after a video review by referee Allen Chapman, it was put back onto the scoreboard.

Jordan Morris and Lodeiro gave Seattle a 2-0 lead in the first 23 minutes of the game before Aaron Long got the Red Bulls on the board in the 27th.

The Sounders, with 49 points, have sole possession of second place in the MLS Western Conference, a point ahead of Minnesota and three ahead of Real Salt Lake. All three of those teams have four games left.
