SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - Chris Wondolowski became the ninth MLS player to reach 100 goals, helping the San Jose Earthquakes salvage a 1-1 draw with 10-man Orlando City on Sunday night.

Wondoloski scored on a penalty kick in the 68th minute, tying it for the Earthquakes (5-4-3). He placed it confidently to the left corner after catching his former teammate, goalkeeper Tally Hall, guessing the wrong way. Wondolowski pumped his fist enthusiastically and raced the ball back to kickoff, hardly stopping to celebrate with his teammates.

Brek Shea was sent off with a straight red card for a studs-up challenge in the 51st minute. But Orlando City (3-5-6) took the lead when Cyle Larin drew a foul inside the edge of the 18-yard box and Kaka smashed home the penalty kick for his fifth goal of the season.

Wondolowski became the second-fastest player behind Taylor Twellman to reach the century mark and tied Edson Buddle for eighth place on the MLS goal list.
