Jack McInerney and Andres Romero scored for the Impact (2-7-4).

Silva gave the Washington club a 3-2 lead in the 39th minute with a strike from about 30 yards, curling a shot just past diving goalkeeper Troy Perkins’ fingertips.

The 25-year-old midfielder completed the hat trick from the penalty spot seconds before halftime, sending Perkins the wrong way with a well-placed shot in the top right corner of the net.

FC Dallas 2, Timbers 2 • In Portland, Ore., Pa Modou Kah scored in stoppage time and Portland rallied to tie FC Dallas in the last game before Major League Soccer takes a break for the World Cup.

Fabian Castillo and Blaz Perez scored for injury-depleted FC Dallas (6-7-4) in the first half, but Will Johnson scored for Portland (4-4-8) on a penalty kick in the 79th minute in the chippy match that saw two Dallas players sent off with red cards.
