Columbus (5-14-3) snapped a five-game losing streak, but has just one win in its last 16 matches. Chicago (5-9-8) had lost back-to-back games.
Djordje Mihailovic opened the scoring for Chicago in the 28th minute, settling a pass with his chest and one-touching it past goalkeeper Joe Bendik. C.J. Sapong gave Chicago a 2-1 lead in the 63rd when a deflected pass fell to his feet for a close-range shot between the legs of Bendik.
Gyasi Zardes tied it at 1 in the 47th for Columbus with a redirection of Luis Argudo's pass along the 6-yard box.
