PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Raul Ruidiaz scored his fifth goal in four games and the Seattle Sounders beat the rival Portland Timbers 2-1 on Sunday to remain undefeated.

Ruidiaz scored on a penalty kick in the 63rd minute and Fredy Montero added a goal in the 79th to help the Sounders improve to 3-0-1. 

Seattle's Stefan Frei stopped a penalty kick in the 56th minute and then denied the re-take. 

Jeremy Ebobisse drew a foul in the box and Frei deflected Valeri's attempt, but video review allowed for the retake — and Frei blocked Valeri's attempt again. 

Portland's Bill Tuiloma denied Frei the shutout with a goal in stoppage time.
