BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. (AP) -- Defender Cory Gibbs scored off a cross from Baggio Husidic in the 80th minute to help the Chicago Fire salvage a 2-2 tie with the San Jose Earthqaukes on Saturday night.

The tie extended the Fire's MLS winless streak to nine games, matching the club record set in 2004.

Chicago (1-4-6) last won in late March. San Jose (3-4-4) extended its unbeaten streak to four.

The Earthquakes took a 2-1 lead in the 74th minute on Chris Wondolowski's header.

Chicago beat San Jose on penalty kicks Tuesday in a U.S. Open Cup match at Buck Shaw Stadium.
