SAN JOSE, Calif. – The San Jose Earthquakes fell to the Philadelphia Union 2-1 on Wednesday night at Avaya Stadium, snapping a 12-match home unbeaten streak (10-0-2) that dated back to April 6. It marked San Jose’s first loss at home since March 30.
Midfielder Jackson Yueill netted his third goal of the season in the 35th minute to give San Jose a 1-0 lead going into halftime.
