Timbers top Chivas USA behind Adi's two goals

CARSON, Calif. — Fanendo Adi scored his first two MLS goals to help the Portland Timbers beat Chivas USA 2-0 on Wednesday night.

Portland improved to 3-3-7, winning its second straight game and third in its last five. Chivas dropped to 2-6-4.

Former Chivas midfielder Jorge Villafana helped create the first goal when he ran down the left flank in the 65th minute and crossed the ball to Adi for a shot from 10 yards out.

Adi doubled Portland's advantage in the 71st minute on a breakaway.

Chivas' Bobby Burling was sent off in the 84th minute after a rough challenge on Adi.

Portland made eight changes to the starting lineup from its win Saturday in New York. Adi played the final 7 minutes against New York and made his first Timbers start against Chivas.
