Andrew Jean-Baptiste scored in stoppage time to give the Portland Timbers a 2-1 victory over the Los Angeles Galaxy on Saturday night.

Jean-Baptiste's header got past Los Angeles goalkeeper Carlo Cudicini as the game wound to a close after Ryan Johnson had evened the score at 1-all in the 27th minute.

Jean-Baptiste doffed his shirt in celebration after his game-winner, his first goal of the season. First-year Timbers coach Caleb Porter flashed a thumbs-up to the crowd.

With the victory, Portland moved into second place in the Western Conference behind Real Salt Lake.
