FRISCO, Texas — Michael Barrios scored two goals to help FC Dallas win its fifth game in row, 4-1 over the Portland Timbers on Saturday night.
Barrios, who came into the match with one career MLS goal, opened the scoring from the right corner of the 6-yard box in the 12th minute.
Ten minutes later, Barrios gave FC Dallas (11-5-5) a 2-0 lead when he found the net from the top of the area.
Kellyn Acosta and Mauro Diaz scored in the 69th and 87th, respectively, — the latter on a penalty kick — to give Dallas a 4-0 advantage.
Fanendo Adi's penalty kick, after Lucas Melano drew a foul, in stoppage time gave Portland (9-8-5) its first road goal in MLS action since a 2-1 win over Colorado on May 30.
