Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

With the Seattle Sounders losing today the Portland Timbers clinched their first ever trip to the playoffs.

In their third season the Portland Timbers are finally going to the playoffs. It is even more sweet that a Seattle Sounders' loss clinched it for them. Now it is all about positioning and making sure they are one of the top three seeds and miss out on the 3 games in 7 days that goes with the 4/5 game.

PORTLAND, Ore. - The Portland Timbers, currently in first place in the Western Conference, today clinched a spot in the 2013 MLS Cup Playoffs. Portland will advance to the postseason for the first time as an MLS club.

Individual-game ticket details for home playoff matches at JELD-WEN Field will be announced at a later time.

The first-place Timbers play host to Real Salt Lake tonight in their regular-season home finale at JELD-WEN Field; kickoff is 7:30 p.m.(Pacific). The matchup will be televised live on ROOT SPORTS, with radio broadcasts available on FM News 101 KXL and in Spanish on La Pantera 940 AM.

As Merritt points out this is just the beginning for this team.
