Angelo Rodriguez scored two first-half goals and Minnesota United held on to beat New York City FC 2-1 after going a man down Saturday night.
    
Rodriguez headed home a wide cross from Miguel Ibarra to open the scoring in the 20th minute for Minnesota (11-16-3). In the 36th, Rodriguez intercepted Ben Sweat's off-target back pass and slipped behind the goalkeeper to easily finish his second goal.
    
Collen Warner received his second yellow card for a careless challenge and was sent off in the 76th minute.
    
Rodney Wallace pulled City (15-9-8) to 2-1 with a tap-in in the first minute of second-half stoppage time, but the Loons held on from there for their second straight win.
