PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) A second straight road win got D.C. United a step closer to securing a playoff spot.

An own goal put United up in the 25th minute and the team held on for a 1-0 victory over the Portland Timbers on Sunday. It was United's second straight win after a three-game losing streak.

United (12-10-9) was denied another goal before halftime. Television replays appeared to show the ball cross the goal line before Timbers midfielder Eryk Williamson cleared it out.
