SANTA CLARA, California (AP) — Chris Wondolowski scored his Major League Soccer-leading 26th goal as the San Jose Earthquakes came back twice in the second half to earn a 2-2 draw with the Los Angeles Galaxy on Sunday.
Wondolowski's diving header in the 73rd minute off Marvin Chavez's corner put him one goal behind Roy Lassiter's MLS season record with one game left.
Robbie Keane scored his 12th goal in 15 games, and Edson Buddle, making his first start since May 26, nodded in his third of the season to stake the Galaxy to a pair of second-half leads.
But Marvin Chavez curled a beautiful free kick, and Wondolowski finally broke through after hitting the post twice in successive minutes earlier in the second half.
The Galaxy are virtually assured of finishing fourth in the Western Conference, and thus having to play an extra postseason match.
Portland's Jack Jewsbury scored in the 39th minute as the Timbers beat Vancouver 1-0 to spoil the Whitecaps' bid to clinch a playoff spot in front of their home fans.
The Whitecaps ended up securing a playoff spots hours later when Seattle beat Dallas.
