VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - Christian Bolanos scored his third goal in three games and the Vancouver Whitecaps rallied to beat the Portland Timbers 2-1 on Saturday.

Bolanos broke a tie in the 66th minute on a chip into the penalty area that goalkeeper Jake Gleeson allowed to trickle between his legs.

Masato Kudo tied it for Vancouver in the 60th minute with his first MLS goal. Kudo took a deflected pass from Cristian Techera and beat Gleeson at the near post on a low shot.

The Whitecaps (4-5-2) won for the second time in their last seven games.

Nate Borchers scored for Portland (3-4-3) in the 34th minute.

The Timbers had a great chance to tie in the 86th on a 3-on-1 break, but goalkeeper David Ousted stopped Diego Valeri's partially deflected shot.
