Hegeler and Schurrle then both had shots saved as the hosts pushed for a second goal.
It came midway through the half as Daniel Carvajal put a cross on to the head of Stefan Kiessling, who made no mistake with his finish.
The hosts' scoring was done done there, however, as Hegeler added his second with a snap-shot finish after being found by Lars Bender.
