In record-setting fashion, the Portland Timbers steamrolled past the San Jose Earthquakes with a 6-1 victory Saturday night at Earthquakes Stadium. Here are three key #StatMan takeaways from #PORvSJ
6 For the first time in an MLS match, the Timbers scored six goals. It is the first time since the club's founding in 1975 that the Timbers have scored six or more goals in a road match.
8 Forward Jeremy Ebobisse scored his eighth headed goal of his Timbers career all coming since the beginning of the 2019 season. In that span, Ebobisse leads MLS with goals from headers, one ahead of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Kei Kamara.
11X2 For the 11th time in MLS play – nine regular season and two in playoffs – Diego Valeri delivered a brace for the Timbers. With his 11 competitive braces, Valeri has the second-most multi-goal games in Timbers all-era history.
