Colorado Blanks Portland 3-0

COMMERCE, Colo. (AP) — Jaime Castrillon and Conor Casey scored four minutes apart in the first half and the Colorado Rapids defeated the Portland Timbers 3-0 Saturday.

It was Casey’s first goal of the year. Colorado (7-8-1) snapped a two-game losing streak with the win.

Jamie Smith scored in the 89th minute to cap the scoring.

Goalkeeper Matt Pickens earned his fifth shutout of the season. Pickens is the franchise leader with 27 shutouts and has 37 in his career.

Portland (4-7-4) had few chances against Pickens in falling to 0-5-2 on the road this year. The Timbers were shut out for the sixth time this year.
