ORLANDO, Fla. — The Earthquakes’ troubles continued Tuesday night as Daryl Dike and Benji Michel each scored two goals, and Nani had a goal and two assists as Orlando City beat San Jose 5-0.
Orlando (5-1-3) won for the fifth time in seven games — with a draw. San Jose (3-6-1) has lost five during a six-match winless stretch.
The game was delayed in the 40th minute for about an hour due to lightening in the area.
Nani opened the scoring in the seventh minute with a penalty kick and Michel made it 2-0 nine minutes later. Dike scored in the 31st by running past the defense for Nani’s through ball and getting around goalkeeper JT Marcinkowski for a shot from a difficult angle.
Dike headed in Nani’s free kick in the 49th for a 4-0 lead and Michel capped it in the 90th, beating Marcinkowski inside the near post.
The five goals were the most Orlando (5-1-3, 18 points) has scored since a 5-1 win over Cincinnati on May 19, 2019, and the most San Jose (3-6-1, 10 points) had allowed since a 5-0 defeat to Colorado last September.
