Atlanta (12-4-5, 41 points), the team with the best record in MLS play, will look at the home draw as almost deflating after the high scoring unit was contained. Seattle (4-9-5, 17 points), the team at the other end of the MLS table, walks away with a smile on its face, especially considering it played a man down the last 30 minutes after Jordan McCrary was sent off for a second yellow card.
Julian Gressel hit a well-placed ball into the penalty box that Josef Martinez got to in between a pair of Seattle defenders. Martinez headed the cross towards the Seattle goal, catching keeper Stefan Frei off the line and tying the game with his MLS-leading 19th goal of the season.
Atlanta was held in check through the first half, with its best scoring chance coming off a near own-goal by Seattle. Will Bruin misread an Atlanta corner kick and touched a ball towards his own goal, but Frei made a diving save that pushed the ball out for another corner.
