Kacper Przybylko scored the tying goal in the 85th minute to help the Philadelphia Union salvage a 1-1 tie with Inter Miami CF on Sunday night at Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

Robbie Robinson scored a goal for Inter Miami, which halted a six-match losing streak while their winless stretch increased to seven.

Robinson’s second career goal allowed Inter Miami (2-8-3, 9 points) to earn a point for the first time since beating FC Cincinnati on May 16.

Philadelphia (6-4-6, 24 points) is just 1-2-2 over its last five matches.

Miami led 1-0 before Przybylko tapped in a rebound for his team-best sixth goal of the season.

Quinn Sullivan took a hard left-footed shot and Miami goalkeeper Nick Marsman got a hand on the ball. But Przybylko was there to easily knock it in to knot the score.

Gonzalo Higuain had the assist on Miami’s goal as he spotted Robinson ready to go on a run and fed him the ball. Robinson sped toward the goal from the left side and sent a right-footer that caromed off the left arm of Philadelphia goalkeeper Matthew Freese and into the net.

Freese had five saves for Philadelphia while starting in place of star goalkeeper Andre Blake, who is playing for Jamaica in the Gold Cup.

Marsman made three saves for Miami, which had a 15-11 edge in shots. Miami placed six on target and the Union had four.

While the game was still scoreless, Higuain had a chance for Miami in the 53rd minute but his right-footer was saved by Freese.

The Union had an opportunity 10 minutes later but Sergio Santos’ left-footed shot was stopped by Marsman.

Robinson had a chance for a second goal in the 72nd minute — one minute after his tally — but his right-footer was just wide of the left post.

Miami held a 7-2 edge in shots in the first half and had a solid opportunity in the 45th minute. Robinson was on the doorstep of the goal but he sent his right-footed shot just wide right of the net.
