SANDY, Utah — Rayan Raveloson scored for the third consecutive game to help the Galaxy rally for a 2-2 tie with Real Salt Lake on Wednesday night.

Julian Araujo played a high ball to the center of the area and Raveloson, at the top of the 6-yard box, scored on a header to make it 2-2 in the 77th minute. The 24-year-old Raveloson, who signed with the Galaxy (8-5-1, 25 points) on May 20, has three goals in four career MLS games.

Ddefender Aaron Herrera played a low cross to the center of the box and Albert Rusnák put away a first-timer to give Real Salt Lake (4-4-5, 17 points) the lead in the ninth minute. Maikel Chang scored his first goal of the season – the second of his career – to make it 2-0 in the 25th.

Víctor Vázquez blasted a rising right-footer into the net to cut it to 2-1 in the 33rd minute.

RSL has conceded 16 goals – 12 in the second half – this season.

Anderson Julio’s header for Salt Lake late in stoppage time bounced off the crossbar.

Javier “Chicharito” Hernández, who is tied with Seattle’s Raúl Ruidíaz with an MLS-best 10 goals this season, and Sebastian Lletget did not play for the Galaxy.
