If the Timbers manage to earn a win tonight they'll have successfully earned 7 of a possible 9 points, a bit better than 2012's record of 5 our of 9 points, albeit in 2012 the Timbers had two home games against San Jose.

Final Thoughts

The Colorado Rapids, New York Red Bulls, and Philadelphia Union did the Timbers a huge favor tonight by beating the LA Galaxy, Real Salt Lake and Vancouver Whitecaps respectively. Right now we're looking at a situation where if the Timbers manage to bring home the three points they need they could see themselves level with Real Salt Lake with a game in hand. That will be very important come August when the Timbers play the Salt Lake City side three times, twice in regular season play.
