Quick Strikes | Blanco starting to move up the career Timbers assist list

The Portland Timbers continue their road trip as they take on Sporting Kansas City Saturday at Children's Mercy Park (5:30pm PT, FOX 12 PLUS). Here are five numbers to know for #SKCvPOR in the latest Quick Strikes. 

13 In his second season with the Timbers, Sebastián Blanco has started to climb up the club's all-era assists chart. His 13 assists puts the Argentine midfielder at 17th place for most assists in all eras of the club.

12 When Andy Polo delivered an assist in Wednesday's match, he became the 12th different player to either score or have an assist for the Timbers in 2018. The Peruvian midfielder is also the fourth Peruvian player with an assist in MLS this season. 

25 With Tomás Conechny making his debut against D.C., the Timbers have had 25 different players see the field for the club in MLS play this season. In 2017, Portland also had 25 players see MLS action. 

8 In just over 1,000 minutes of action in 2018, forward Samuel Armenteros has racked up eight goals in his debut MLS season. Armenteros is the fourth Timbers player to score eight or more goals in his first season in MLS, joining Diego Valeri, Fanendo Adi, and Blanco. 

115 Since making his debut as a 19-year-old in 2013, Alvas Powell has now played in 115 MLS matches for Portland. Against D.C. United, Powell became the 15th player in Portland's all-era history to play 115 league matches for the Timbers.
