Samuel Armenteros also scored, and Diego Valeri assisted on all three goals to help the Timbers (7-3-5) extend their unbeaten streak to 10 games (7-0-3). That is the longest unbeaten run in MLS this season. Portland's last loss was at Orlando on April 8.

Armenteros scored in the 57th minute on a long through ball from Valeri. That was his fourth goal of the year.
The Sounders (3-9-3) came from behind twice to tie it.
