SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Chris Wondolowski scored his sixth winning goal of the season and ninth overall, nodding home a header in the 69th minute to help the San Jose Earthquakes beat the Philadelphia Union 1-0 on Wednesday night in Major League Soccer.
The Earthquakes (10-7-6) moved past Colorado into sixth place in the overall standings.
Wondolowski, tied with Los Angeles' Edson Buddle for the most winners in MLS play, got a clean look at Arturo Alvarez's cross from the right wing and guided the ball past goalkeeper Brad Knighton.
Philadelphia (6-12-6) had two good scoring chances in the first half, but goalkeeper Jon Busch stopped long attempts by Stefani Miglioranzi and Andrew Jacobson en route to his second consecutive shutout and fourth this season. Busch grabbed a deflected shot from former Shea Salinas in the 93rd minute.Real Salt Lake beats Toronto in Champions League
