SAN JOSE (AP) — Conor Casey scored two late goals on headers and the Philadelphia Union rallied to beat San Jose 2-1 on Saturday night, ending the Earthquakes’ winning streak at four games.

Casey entered as a substitute in the 60th minute and tied it in the 74th, finishing Raymon Gaddis’ diagonal cross with a leaping header. The goal snapped San Jose’s 447-minute shutout streak, the longest in MLS this season.

The Union (8-14-6) took the lead in the 86th minute when Casey redirected Tranquillo Barnetta’s free kick with a glancing header.

Chris Wondolowski converted from the spot to open the scoring for the Quakes (11-11-5) in the 64th minute.

With a victory, San Jose would have moved ahead of Sporting Kansas City and the Portland Timbers into a fourth-place tie with FC Dallas in the Western Conference.

The Quakes’ Victor Bernardez left the game in the 39th minute with an apparent hamstring injury.
