PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Sebastian Blanco’s goal in the 53rd minute was the final tally in the playoff-bound Portland Timbers' 3-0 victory over Austin FC on Sunday in the final regular-season game. The Timbers already clinched the fourth spot in the standings with a 3-1 victory over Real Salt Lake on Wednesday. As a result, Portland will open the playoffs with a home match against Minnesota, which played to a 3-3 draw with the LA Galaxy. Austin had been eliminated before Sunday's game. Portland set a club record for most wins in a season.
