Bastian Schweinsteiger slid in a lovely ball to David Accam, who finished well in the 77th minute to cut the lead, but the visiting side was able to hang on to get the result. 

It was the fourth loss in a row for the Fire, who sit 12 points back of first place Toronto FC in the Eastern Conference.
