Rodrigo earns point for Leeds in 2-2 draw with West Ham

LEEDS, England (AP) — Rodrigo salvaged a point for Leeds in a 2-2 draw with fellow Premier League struggler West Ham. The Spain forward powered home his 10th league goal of the season midway through the second half. The Hammers were on course for their first league win since October after goals either side of halftime via Brazil midfielder Lucas Paqueta’s penalty and a strike by Gianluca Scamacca. They were in response to Wilfried Gnonto’s opener for Leeds. The Hammers halted a run of five straight league defeats but is in fourth-to-last place and only out of the relegation zone on goal difference. Leeds is three points higher in 14th place.
