PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

For the second straight week, a Portland Timbers player has been named the MLS player of the week.

Last week it was Fanendo Adi, this week it's Darlington Nagbe.

Nagbe registered a first-half brace and added an assist in the Timbers 4-1 win over the Colorado Rapids on Sunday at Providence Park.

It is Nagbe's first player of the week honor. He is the sixth different Timbers player to receive the award since 2011.

The win in the regular-season finale earned Portland the Western Conference's third seed in the MLS Cup Playoffs.

The Timbers will host Sporting Kansas City on Thursday in a knockout round match.
