Real Salt Lake goalkeeper Nick Rimando returned to the starting lineup Saturday night at Rio Tinto Stadium after missing the club’s previous two matches with an injured left knee.

RSL’s 1-0 victory over Portland at Rio Tinto Stadium lifted the franchise’s all-time record to 108-108-77. That’s another remarkable achievement for an expansion team that started so inauspiciously and now is a Major League Soccer model. Ned Grabavoy’s left-footed, bouncing shot into the corner of the net and a series of huge saves from goalkeeper Nick Rimando gave RSL (3-0-4) a nice win Saturday...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
