SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Erick Torres scored his 11th goal of the season to give Chivas USA its first back-to-back victories of the Major League Soccer season, 1-0 over the San Jose Earthquakes on Wednesday night.

The Earthquakes failed to clear Mauro Rosales' cross into the box after two botched headers. Torres was waiting for the ball at the far post and slid the ball to the left corner of the net to give Chivas USA the lead in the 53rd minute.

Torres drew level with Dom Dwyer of Sporting Kansas City for second place in the Golden Boot race. New York Red Bulls' Bradley Wright-Phillips leads Major League Soccer with 12 goals.

In the day's other match, Harrison Shipp's second-half goal gave the Chicago Fire a 1-1 draw with a 10-man Toronto on a rainy night.

Toronto opened the scoring in the 42nd minute when Jermain Defoe floated a cross to the back post where an unmarked Jackson headed it past Sean Johnson.

Chicago levelled the match in the 56th minute after Shipp's deflected shot inside the penalty area squeaked past goalkeeper Joe Bendik. It was Shipp's sixth goal of the season.

The Fire have not won in five games, while Toronto's undefeated streak reached six games.

Toronto was reduced to 10 men when forward Luke Moore was sent off in the 29th minute after leading with an elbow on a challenge with Chris Ritter.
