The New York Red Bulls' 7-0 triumph at Yankee Stadium over rivals New York City FC was a victory of historic proportions.
In fact, the seven-goal thumping ranks as the largest road win in MLS history.
The Red Bulls matched the Chicago Fire (7-0 win in Kansas City on July 4, 2001) and the LA Galaxy (8-1 win in Dallas on June 4, 1998) with a whopping seven-goal margin of victory away from home.
And there was one more statistical nugget to come out of the match: It was the first time in MLS history that three substitutes scored in the same game (credit: Elias Sports Bureau). In this case it was Gonzalo Veron, Gideon Baah and rookie Alex Muyl who all found the back of the net.
RBNY has now won all four matches they have played against NYCFC, who joined the league as an expansion team in 2015. Two of those victories came at Yankee Stadium and after Saturday's victory, the goal differential in the all-time series stands at 14-2 in favor of the Red Bulls.
The two clubs face one another twice more this year: July 3 at Yankee Stadium (12 pm ET, ESPN) and July 24 at Red Bull Arena (1 pm ET, FOX).
