A Jo Inge Berget brace helped New York City to a 2-1 win over Toronto in Domenec Torrent's first game in charge on Sunday.
Torrent, who took over from Patrick Vieira earlier this month after the Frenchman's move to Nice, led his side to a hard-fought win at Yankee Stadium.
After David Villa came off injured for City approaching the half-hour mark, Victor Vazquez opened the scoring for Toronto.
Vazquez got on the end of a long pass from Auro before lobbing onrushing goalkeeper Sean Johnson.
Berget equalised six minutes after half-time with a neat back flick, before the Norwegian scored the winner.
The forward finished clinically from inside the area after being played in by Maximiliano Moralez in the 68th minute.
City moved back into second in the Eastern Conference with the win, leapfrogging the rival New York Red Bulls, while struggling Toronto are 10th.
In the day's other game, Eastern Conference leaders Atlanta United were held to a 1-1 draw by the Portland Timbers.
Larrys Mabiala put visiting Portland up in the 32nd minute, in a game that saw multiple chances for each side and both teams strike the woodwork.
Julian Gressel would level the scoreline in the second half to add a point to Atlanta's league-best record, though the Five Stripes were unable to find a winner.
Meanwhile, Portland sits fifth in the Western Conference on 23 points.
