BOX SCORE

SAN JOSE -- Chris Wondolowski scored his 142nd career goal on a go-ahead score in the 62nd minute and the San Jose Earthquakes beat Western Conference leader FC Dallas 4-3 on Wednesday night to snap an 11-game home winless stretch.

San Jose (4-14-8) won at home for the first time since March 18th, ending the longest home winless stretch in MLS history. Wondolowski is three goals shy of tying Landon Donovan for the MLS record.

The Earthquakes led 2-1 at halftime - with two goals from Valeri Qazaishvili - before the teams traded four goals in an 11-minute span early in the second half. Four of Qazaishvili's eight goals this season have come against FC Dallas.

Halftime substitute Santiago Mosquera tied it at 2 for FC Dallas (13-6-7) in the 51st with his first goal since April 29th. Dominique Badji scored his ninth goal of the season, the second with Dallas, in the 58th to tie it at 3.

BOX SCORE

SAN JOSE -- Carlos Vela capped his first career MLS hat trick with a curling shot from distance and Los Angeles FC beat the San Jose Earthquakes 5-0 on Saturday.

Vela has six goals and three assists in five games this season.

LAFC (4-0-1) opened the scoring in the eighth minute by capitalizing on a goalkeeper mistake as Daniel Vega whiffed on a clearance attempt and Vela walked it into the back of the net in the eighth minute. Vela added a goal in first-half stoppage time by redirecting home a cross if front of the goal, and he had the goal of the match in the 66th.

Former San Jose defender Steven Beitashour got past the defense for a through ball in the 26th and poked it inside the far post for a 2-0 lead. Diego Rossi scored a relatively easy goal to cap the scoring in the 68th, and Tyler Miller kept his first clean sheet of the season against San Jose (0-4-0).

HARRISON, N.J. -- Alex Muyl scored a pair of second-half goals on Saturday and the New York Red Bulls rallied after an early deficit for a 4-1 win over the San Jose Earthquakes.

Muyl tied it for the Red Bulls (1-0-1) on a close-range shot in the 51st minute and made it 2-1 with a volley off a defensive deflection in the 71st minute.

Bradley Wright-Phillips added a third goal for New York in the 85th minute and Daniel Royer capped the scoring in the 89th.

Cristian Espinoza opened the scoring in the fifth minute for San Jose (0-3-0) with his first MLS goal.

Matias Almeyda, who joined San Jose in the offseason after leading C.D. Guadalajara to a CONCACAF Champions League title in 2018, is still looking for his first point as coach of the Earthquakes.
