CARSON, Calif., June 20 (UPI) -- Donovan Ricketts made four saves Wednesday to preserve Portland's 0-0 tie with Los Angeles and extend the Timbers' unbeaten streak to 14 games.

Portland has gone 6-0-8 in those 14 games. The Timbers' last loss was a 2-1 decision against Montreal on March 9. Portland improved to 6-1-9 for the season and is one point behind Dallas for first place in the Western Conference.
