ATLANTA (AP) Luiz Araujo had a goal and an assist and Josef Martinez also scored to help Atlanta United beat Inter Miami 2-1 on Wednesday night.
Martinez slipped behind the defense and ran onto a perfectly timed through ball by Araujo and rolled in a one-touch finish from near the spot to give Atlanta (12-9-10) a 2-1 lead in the 73rd minute.
Gonzalo Higuain converted a penalty kick in the 32nd minute for Miami (11-16-5) after Atlanta goalkeeper Bradley Guzan collided with Lewis Morgan.
Araujo skipped a free kick from just outside the area to tie it in the 59th.
Atlanta is unbeaten in its last three games and is sixth in the Eastern Conference standings with 46 points.
