SEATTLE (AP) — Josef Martínez converted a penalty kick in the 86th minute to help Atlanta United to a 1-1 tie with the Seattle Sounders.

Atlanta (2-1-3), which had won back-to-back games and is unbeaten in three straight, had 63% possession and snapped the Sounders' four-game win streak. 

Brooks Lennon drew a foul, conceded by Brad Smith, in the area and Martínez scored from the spot to make it 1-all. 

Raúl Ruidíaz headed home a corner kick by João Paulo to give Seattle (5-0-2) a 1-0 lead in the sixth minute.
