SANDY (AP) — Danny Hoesen scored his third goal in two games and Andrew Tarbell tied his career high with seven saves to help the San Jose Earthquakes to a 1-1 tie with Real Salt Lake on Saturday night.
Valeri Qazaishvili’s shot from the top of the box was stopped by a diving Nick Rimando, but Hoesen chipped in the rebound to make it 1-1 in the 64th minute.
Salt Lake’s Damir Kreilach opened the scoring in the 54th, heading home Corey Baird’s redirection of a corner kick by Albert Rusnak from the top of the 6-yard box.
San Jose (2-9-4), which won for the first time since May 12, snapped a six-game losing streak.
Real Salt Lake (7-7-1), which outshot San Jose by a 28-15 margin, had its six-game home win streak snapped. RSL pinged a pair of shots off the crossbar in the second half — the second on the final play of the match.
Martinez strikes again
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Josef Martinez scored his MLS-leading 14th goal of the season, Hector Villalba added a goal in the 82nd minute and Atlanta United beat the Columbus Crew 2-0 on Wednesday night.
Atlanta (10-3-3), the Supporters’ Shield leader, handed Columbus (7-4-6) its second loss in its last 16 home games. United also snapped the Crew’s nine-game unbeaten streak.
Martinez opened the scoring in the 30th minute by heading home Ezequiel Barco’s corner kick. Martinez was injured on the play and was replaced at halftime. Martinez has six goals in the last four games.
Villalba, a second-half sub returning from injury, finished off Atlanta’s counter attack by rolling a shot under goalkeeper Zack Steffen.
Steffen had a 525-minute shutout streak snapped. The run was the eighth longest in MLS history.
Toronto storms back
TORONTO (AP) — Nick Hagglund scored two of Toronto FC’s four-second half goals and the Reds overcame a three-goal deficit to tie D.C. United.
Jonathan Osorio and Victor Vasquez also scored for defending MLS champion Toronto (4-7-3). Yamil Asad scored twice, and Paul Arriola and Darren Matt added goals for United (2-6-4).
Asad scored what appeared to be the winner in the 90th minute after Patrick Mullins found him unmarked in front of the net. However, Hagglund tied it again seconds later when he connected on Osorio’s cross.
