MLS Timbers beat Earthquakes SANTA CLARA,

Calif.— Rodney Wallace scored twice in 3 minutes in the Portland Timbers' 2-1 comeback victory over the San Jose Earthquakes on Saturday night. Liam Ridgewell sent a high-speed header deflecting unintentionally off Wallace's head and looping past a helpless Jon Busch in the 74th minute for the go-ahead goal. Wallace tied it 71st minute with a left-footed blast into the upper-left corner of the net. The Timbers (10-912) moved within one point of the Vancouver Whitecaps for the fifth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference. Chris Wondolowski opened the scoring in the 56th minute with his 14th goal of the season. He forced a diving save from Portland goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts before flicking the rebound in with the outside of his
