Miguel Ibarra made it 2-0 in the 52nd minute. Quintero started the counterattack from behind midfield and fed it to Ibarra who set up his left-footed finish with a cutback.
    
San Jose's Harold Cummings scored an own goal in the 75th minute as Jan Gregus' corner deflected off his shoulder into the net.
    
It was Minnesota United's first ever win against the Quakes (0-2-0). San Jose won all four of the previous matches in the series.
