The Timbers opened the scoring when Diego Valeri converted a free kick into the upper right corner from just outside the box in the 14th minute. Los Angeles nearly tied it in the 29th minute, but Gyasi Zardes’ header hit the bar squarely.

Red Bulls 2, Revolution 1 • Bradley Wright-Phillips scored his MLS-leading 18th goal of the season and the 10-man New York Red Bulls beat New England in Harrison, N.J. Wright-Phillips curled in a left-footed shot in the 63rd minute for his ninth goal in his last 10 games. He’s a goal away from tying the single-season club record set by Juan Pablo Angel in 2007.

Matt Miazga received a red card for New York (6-6-10) in the second minute of first-half stoppage time for a late challenge of Lee Nguyen.

Crew 1, Fire 1 • Federico Higuain scored 10 seconds into the second half for Columbus in the Crew’s tie with Chicago. Ethan Finlay redirected a one-hopper from midfield and Fire defender Patrick Ianni overplayed the clearance attempt. Higuain gathered the loose ball, evaded Lovel Palmer and struck the ball into the left corner.

Earthquakes 1, Sounders 0 • In Santa Clara, Calif., Yannick Djalo scored from the edge of the box on a crisp pass from Chris Wondolowski in the 42nd minute, and San Jose held off Seattle in the first sporting event at Levi’s Stadium.

Toronto FC 2, Impact 0 • Gilberto and Luke Moore scored to help Toronto beat Montreal for its first victory in five MLS games.
