NEW YORK RED BULLS 0, PORTLAND TIMBERS 0
HARRISON, NJ-- The New York Red Bulls played to a 0-0 draw with the Portland Timbers on Sunday night at Red Bull Arena. The Red Bulls are undefeated in their last six home games, with five shutouts in that stretch.

The Red Bulls remain fourth in the MLS East at 7-9-3 and 24 points, while Portland (6-6-7, 25) move into a tie on points with Vancouver for sixth place in the West and extend their unbeaten streak to seven games.

New York had several quality scoring chances, including a free kick from Felipe in the 17th minute that cleared the wall and dipped on-frame, but was pushed away by Portland's Jake Gleeson for the first of his four saves.

Red Bulls netminder Luis Robles also made four saves, starting with a stop on Lucas Melano's 18-yard volley in the tenth minute, on the way to his sixth shutout of the season. Robles was beaten once, in the 55th minute, but Ben Zemanski's volley hit the crossbar.
