MLS: San Jose 2, Portland 1

July 28, 2013 at 1:06 AM

SAN JOSE, Calif., July 28 (UPI) -- Victor Bernardez and Steven Lenhart scored 3 minutes apart in the second half Saturday, elevating the San Jose Earthquakes over Portland 2-1.

San Jose was awarded a penalty kick in the 53rd minute of a scoreless tie when Shea Salinas was taken down by Andrew Jean-Baptise at the top of the area, and Bernardez followed by putting a shot past Timbers goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts.

Lenhart added a much-needed insurance tally for the Earthquakes (7-9-6) in the 58th minute when he slid through the box to put home a free kick by Salinas.

Darlington Nagbe later scored for Portland (8-3-10), which retained second place in the Western Conference despite the loss.
