HARRISON, N.J. (AP) — Heath Pearce's tiebreaking goal in the 83rd minute lifted the New York Red Bulls to a 3-2 victory over the Portland Timbers on Sunday night.

Tim Cahill got his first MLS goal and Kenny Cooper also scored for New York (13-7-5), which rallied from a two-goal deficit in the first half. The Red Bulls improved to 9-0-3 at home, remaining the league's only team unbeaten at home.

Bright Dike and Darlington Nagbe scored for Portland (5-13-6), which extended its winless streak to eight matches.

New York won its second straight after two losses and moved two points behind Eastern Conference-leading Sporting Kansas City.
