FRISCO, Texas -- Jean-Baptiste Pierazzi broke a tie in the 45th minute and the San Jose Earthquakes beat FC Dallas 2-1 on Saturday night for their first road victory of the season.

San Jose improved to 4-4-4, and Dallas dropped to 0-6-2 in its last eight and 5-7-3 overall. Dallas has failed to score multiple goals in a game during the eight-game winless streak.

San Jose played with a man advantage after FC Dallas' Adam Moffat received a red-card in the 37th minute. It's the sixth red card the FC Dallas player has received this year.

Pierazzi scored on a right-footed volley from 25 yards away that landed just inside the near post and over the fingertips of goalkeeper Chris Seitz. The goal was Pierazzi's first in MLS.

"I had a lot of space in front of me, it's a good score, it's a great goal," Pierazzi said. "It's been a hard start for the season, it's been difficult, new country, new football, good to score."

Blas Perez opened the scoring for Dallas in the 16th minute, and Atiba Harris tied it in the 27th.

Dallas had a chance to tie it less than a minute later after Fabian Castillo was awarded a penalty kick, but goalkeeper Jon Busch made a diving two-handed save to his right. Castillo was awarded the penalty after a foul by Jordan Stewart. Busch also made another two-handed save on Castillo's shot in the 71st minute.

Perez scored on a right-footed volley from the top of the penalty box. Castillo set up the score with a cross to Perez.

Harris tied when he placed a shot into the centre of the net from 8 yards away. Steven Lenhart set up the goal with a cross from across the penalty box.
