Chris Wondolowski's goal in the 66th minute drew the San Jose Earthquakes even with the Galaxy for a 1-1 tie Sunday in the final California Clasico this season.
Jordan Stewart assisted on the goal, sending a pass through Galaxy (14-5-9) defenders to find Wondolowski open near the far post.
Omar Gonzalez opened the scoring in the 28th minute on a header off Stefan Ishizaki's corner.
After Jon Busch made a series of diving saves for San Jose (6-11-10), the momentum turned in the Earthquakes' favor when Robbie Keane missed a penalty kick off the post for the Galaxy in the 37th minute.
The rivalry was marked by physical play, resulting in nine yellow cards.
