Timbers-Earthquakes Preview

The Portland Timbers are still looking to rediscover their MLS Is Back tournament form heading into a Wednesday night matchup with the struggling San Jose Earthquakes.

The Timbers (4-4-2) are in the middle of the pack in the Western Conference, entering this match in sixth place on 14 points. Portland, which won more games en route to the tournament title than it currently has in the regular season, has taken just four points in five matches (1-1-3) and is coming off a 4-2 loss at Los Angeles FC on Sunday.

Eryk Williamson and Jeremy Ebobisse scored first-half goals 18 minutes apart, but during those 18 minutes the Timbers fell apart defensively and conceded three goals.
