Erick Torres beat defender VÃctor Bernardez along the end line and bounced his shot off the far post. Borja was in the middle of the box for the rebound and finished with a left-footed toe punch for his third goal of the season.

Earthquakes (6-16-12) goalkeeper Jon Busch broke the club record for saves in a season, recording his 138th in the 62nd minute.
