CARSON, Calif. -- Robbie Keane scored twice to help the Los Angeles Galaxy beat the Portland Timbers 3-1 on Saturday.

Keane broke a tie in the 73rd minute, beating defenders to the back post to head home Landon Donovan's left-footed service. Keane converted a penalty shot in the 85th minute to seal the victory. It was his 12th goal of the season, moving him to fourth in MLS.

The Timbers opened the scoring when Diego Valeri converted a free kick into the upper right corner from just outside the box in the 14th minute. Los Angeles nearly tied it in the 29th minute, but Gyasi Zardes' header hit the bar squarely.

The Galaxy (9-4-6) drew even in first-half stoppage time as Zardes didn't miss his next chance, heading Robbie Rogers' left-footed cross past goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts.

Portland fell to 6-7-9.
