Kaku and Kemar Lawrence were both named to MLS Team of the Week, pres. by Audi.
Kaku led the New York Red Bulls to victory with the game-winning goal, his fourth goal and fourth game-winner of the year.
Lawrence helped anchor the defense en route to a clean sheet, helping the Red Bulls maintain the fewest goals against in MLS this season.
New York tallied its 10th win at Red Bull Arena as they have captured 31 of the 39 possible points this season. The Red Bulls have recorded at least 10 wins at RBA in seven of the possible nine seasons since the inception of the building in 2010.
Kaku and Lawrence also both logged full 90 shifts in the Red Bulls' draw vs. NYCFC earlier in the week.
