COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (AP) — Juan Pablo Angel scored in the 83rd minute to rally Chivas USA to a 1-1 tie with the Colorado Rapids on Saturday night.

Tristan Bowen took possession of the ball along the sideline and found Angel alone behind the Colorado defense. Angel easily beat Matt Pickens, denying the Colorad goalkeeper his seventh shutout of the season. Pickens is the franchise's all-time leader in shutouts (28) and wins (40).

Chivas USA (7-9-6) had only two shots on goal the entire game, both late in the game. The Goats have scored only 15 goals all season.

Brian Mullan scored in the 19th minute for Colorado (8-15-2), which has not lost in its last seven meetings (5-0-2) against Chivas USA.
