SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Alberto Quintero scored two goals off assists by Chris Wondolowski and the San Jose Earthquakes beat the Houston Dynamo 3-1 on Wednesday night.

Quintero opened the scoring in the third minute when he got a sliding touch on Wondolowski’s breakaway cross. Quintero also assisted on Anibal Godoy’s give-and-go goal in the 50th minute to make it 2-1 for San Jose (5-3-3).

Wondolowski won a cross with three defenders surrounding him in the 70th minute and found an open Quintero in front of goal.

It was the second two-assist game of Wondolowski’s career. He is fourth in MLS history with 116 goals and has 25 assists.

Houston goalkeeper Tyler Deric was given a straight red card in the 79th for tripping Simon Dawkins on a fast break. Deric came out of his box and slipped while trying to clear the ball. He got up and made contact with Dawkins’ left leg to prevent a goal. Starting defensive back Jalil Anibaba switched to goalkeeper for the final 10-plus minutes.

Ricardo Clark scored just before halftime for Houston (2-6-2) on a volley from distance.
