Quick Strikes | Timbers wrap up the regular season against Cascadia foe Vancouver

The Portland Timbers wrap up the 2017 MLS regular season by hosting Vancouver Whitecaps FC Sunday at Providence Park (1pm PT, ROOT SPORTS). Here are five numbers to know for #PORvVAN

8With his brace Sunday, Sebastián Blanco is the third Timbers player to score eight or more goals for the club in his first season in MLS, joining Diego Valeri and Fanendo Adi. 

7 Diego Valeri will wrap up one of the best regular seasons in league history on Sunday. Valeri, who in 2017 has scored the most goals by a midfielder in a single season, has notched a league-leading seven game-winning goals this year. 

4 Forward Darren Mattocks has drawn four penalty kicks this season, which is twice as many as any other Timbers player has ever drawn in an MLS season. In addition, only two players in MLS have drawn more penalties than Mattocks in 2017. 

253 Since his Timbers debut in 2013, Caleb Porter has led the Timbers to 253 points in regular season. The victory over D.C. United moved Porter into 15th place all-time for most points by a head coach in MLS history. 

12 Since Larrys Mabiala made his Portland debut on July 19, the defender leads the Timbers in blocks with 12 along with interceptions (24), clearances (70), and aerials won (24).
