BERLIN (AP) -Michel Bastos scored twice to salvage a 2-2 draw for Schalke at Mainz in the Bundesliga on Saturday, offering embattled coach Jens Keller some respite before Wednesday's Champions League game at Galatasaray.

Mainz, which knocked Schalke out of the German Cup in Keller's first game last December, scored through Andreas Ivanschitz in the 27th, but Bastos equalized with a simple tap-in in the 41st.

Zdenek Pospech put the home side back ahead in the 63rd, only for winter signing Bastos to equalize again with eight minutes remaining.

Bayer Leverkusen beat Augsburg 2-1, Freiburg held on for a 3-2 win at Werder Bremen, Rafael van der Vaart struck to give Hamburger SV a 1-0 win at home over Borussia Moenchengladbach, and Fortuna Duesseldorf beat bottom side Greuther Fuerth 1-0.
