NEW YORK (AP) David Villa didn't let the rain bother him Saturday, scoring twice in leading New York City FC past Seattle 2-1.
The star striker from Spain scored his 50th and 51st MLS career goals in the second half.
Seattle took a 1-0 lead in the 40th minute on a goal by Cristian Roldan. He got free after the ball was deflected and made his way through the water-clogged Yankee Stadium turf to score.
But Villa tied it with a penalty kick in the 52nd. And 25 minutes later, he volleyed home Jack Harrison's cross.
The hosts are 8-5-3 for 27 points in the Eastern Division. Defending MLS champion Seattle is 5-7-4 for 19 points in the Western Division.
