The Timbers traveled east to take on the New York Red Bulls, looking to pick up some points after their disappointing draw to San Jose.  But the Timbers continued to find it difficult to get results on the road, and fell 2-0 to New York, though with the point they are back in the last playoff spot for the moment.
