The Timbers beat DC United 4-0 to also secure a spot from the west, while Houston Dynamo and Sporting Kansas City also clinched play-off places.

In Seattle, the Sounders took a 31st-minute lead through Victor Rodriguez, who finished clinically after being put in by Clint Dempsey.

A quick-fire brace from Will Bruin helped Seattle on their way, the forward putting away a rebound and later a side-footed finish.

Lamar Neagle headed in a Nicolas Lodeiro cross to complete the comfortable win in additional time.

Portland cruised past DC thanks to a second-half brace from Sebastian Blanco at Providence Park.

Diego Valeri scored with a penalty before Alvas Powell curled in a fine effort shortly after half-time.

Blanco made it 3-0 with a curling strike into the top corner on the hour-mark before he sealed the victory.

Sporting and Houston are also heading to the play-offs after playing out a 0-0 draw.
