ORLANDO, Florida (AP) - Shea Salinas scored in the fourth minute of stoppage time to earn San Jose a 2-2 draw with Orlando City on Saturday in an emotional Major League Soccer match that paid tribute to the 49 people killed last week in the Orlando nightclub attack.

Orlando players wore #orlandounited patches on their jerseys and the families of the victims and first responders were recognized before the game.

There was also a moment of silence in the 49th minute for the 49 people who lost their lives in the mass shooting in the Pulse nightclub last Saturday.

Elsewhere, former Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard scored his first goal of the season as New York City earned a 3-2 victory over Philadelphia.

David Villa and Andrea Pirlo also scored for NYCFC, which is in second in the Eastern Conference behind Philadelphia. The Union had their club-record eight-game unbeaten streak end.

Lampard’s goal in the eighth minute came in his first start of the season. Villa scored his 11th goal of the season in the 21st minute and Pirlo converted a free kick for his first career MLS goal in the 50th minute.

Marco Pappa scored in the 89th minute to give the MLS-leading Colorado Rapids a 2-1 victory over the Chicago Fire.

The Guatemala international entered late as a substitute for Dillon Powers and scored on a left-footed shot that deflected off defender Jonathan Campbell.

The Rapids, with a league-best 31 points, set a club record in needing just 15 games to surpass the 30-point mark.

Drew Moor scored on a diving header in the 79th minute in Toronto FC’s 1-0 victory over Los Angeles, the Reds’ first win in 11 tries against the Galaxy.

Benoit Cheyrou sent in a long ball that Eriq Zavaleta headed backward toward the net, placing it perfectly for Moor to launch past goalkeeper Brian Rowe. It was the American’s 24th career MLS goal.

In Vancouver, Kelyn Rowe took advantage of a defensive lapse to score in the 55th minute to lift New England to a 2-1 victory over Vancouver.

Real Salt Lake’s Yura Movsisyan converted a penalty kick in the 70th minute to salvage a 2-2 draw with Portland.

In other games, D.C. United and the Houston Dynamo played to a scoreless draw, as did the Montreal Impact and Columbus Crew.
