FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP)Gonzalo Higuain scored the first of four second-half goals and Inter Miami kept its slim playoff hopes alive with a 5-1 victory over FC Cincinnati on Saturday night.

It was also Miami’s largest margin of victory while Cincinnati extended its club-record losing streak to nine games.

Higuain scored on a header in the 53rd minute. Indiana Vassilev, Lewis Morgan, and Julian Carranza then added goals within a 16-minute span.

Federico Higuain’s header goal on a cross from Rodolfo Pizarro opened the scoring in the sixth minute for Miami.

Brandon Vazquez scored on a header from close range in the 21st minute for Cincinnati.
