CARSON, Calif., June 18 (UPI) -- Jamil Walker scored in the second half Wednesday night to pull San Jose into a 1-1 tie with Los Angeles.

The Earthquakes became the first visiting team to earn a point at The Home Depot Center, the Galaxy's home field.

Walker's tally in the 63rd minute canceled a first-half strike by Sasha Victorine and gave San Jose sole possession of first place in the Western Conference.

The Galaxy christened their new stadium with a pair of wins following a season-opening 0-4-4 road trip.

For the Quakes, Brian Mullan spun away from a defender and slipped the ball to Ian Russell running behind the defense. Russell drove a low shot across the face of the net, where Walker knocked it over the line for his first MLS goal.

Victorine scored San Jose's lone goal.

Cobi Jones served a corner kick from the left side and Victorine rose over Ramiro Corrales to put a header inside the goalpost for his first goal of the season.
