COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (AP) — Jaime Castrillon scored the tying goal in the 70th minute and the Colorado Rapids extended their unbeaten streak to seven games with a 2-2 draw with Real Salt Lake on Saturday.

Castrillon's goal off a header was his first of the season. Deshorn Brown added a goal for Colorado (9-7-8).

The Rapids are 4-0-3 in their past seven games after a 0-4-1 stretch.

Midfielder Atiba Harris left in the first half with a right quad injury. The Rapids were already without Hendry Thomas, who served the first of a two-game suspension after receiving a second yellow card in last week's game with Los Angeles.

The game was halted for an hour and two minutes in the first half due to lightening in the area. Several downpours of rain made for difficult field conditions.

Alvero Saborio and Ned Grabavoy scored goals for Real Salt Lake (11-7-5).
