Salt Lake won the two-legged playoff 5-2 after beating the Timbers 4-2 two weeks ago at Rio Tinto Stadium. Salt Lake, which won the league championship in 2009, will play Sporting Kansas City for this championship on Dec. 7.
Sunday's victory extended Salt Lake's unbeaten streak against Portland to 10 straight matches. The Timbers remain winless against Real Salt Lake since their first meeting when Portland joined MLS in the 2011 season.
