ATLANTA (AP) Josef Martinez scored twice in the first half to help Atlanta United beat the Chicago Fire 2-0 on Saturday.

Martinez opened the scoring for Atlanta (8-5-2) in the 12th minute. Gonzalo ''Pity'' Martinez slotted a pass forward in the middle of the penalty area and Josef Martinez put it into the back of the net.

Josef Martinez finished a breakaway from the top of the 18-yard box to make it 2-0 in the 43rd minute. He has 10 goals this season.

Atlanta United rebounded from back-to-back losses with back-to-back wins and has won seven of its last nine.

The Fire (4-6-6) announced during that game that 20-year-old midfielder Djordje Mihailovic was called into camp with the U.S. Men's National Team ahead of the Wednesday night friendly against Jamaica in Washington.
