Alan Gordon scored an equalizer in second-half injury time as the Chicago Fire rallied for a 2-2 draw against Toronto FC on Saturday.

Bastian Schweinsteiger had the other goal for the Fire, while Jonathan Osorio and Victor Vazquez scored for Toronto.

With Chicago trailing 2-0, Schweinsteiger's header from a Diego Campos corner kick beat Alex Bono in the 69th minute.

Gordon put home the rebound off Schweinsteiger's shot to pull the Fire even in the dying seconds.

The Reds were playing with a depleted back end, with four defenders unavailable because of injuries. Forward Jozy Altidore was also out after he was injured in Wednesday's CONCACAF Champions League Final loss to Chivas in Guadalajara.

Toronto, who have just one win so far in MLS this season, avoided its third consecutive loss in league play.

Osorio, who won the Golden Boot in the CCL, put Toronto on the board in the eighth minute by tapping in a cross from Sebastian Giovinco for his first goal of the season.

The Reds appeared to take a 2-0 lead in the 11th minute when Giovinco hit a first-time shot from a Nicolas Hasler pass by goalkeeper Richard Sanchez, but Hasler was ruled offside after a video review.

Vazquez doubled Toronto's lead in the 22nd minute as his chipped shot landed just inside the far post.
