MLS Wrap: Portland clinch Western Conference

In their final game before the MLS playoffs, Portland scored three times in the first half to effectively end the contest by the break, while Ryan Johnson and Will Johnson scored within five minutes of each other in the second stanza to wrap up the rout.
