Diego Valeri scored in the final minute of stoppage time to pull the Portland Timbers into a 1-1 tie with the Galaxy on Sunday in front of a sellout crowd at Providence Park.

The equalizer came after Robbie Keane's header two minutes into stoppage time appeared to give the Galaxy the victory. Los Angeles peppered goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts with shots all game, but couldn't break through until Keane's fifth goal of the season.

Valeri's goal was his second.

The Timbers looked to have a chance in the 34th minute but Valeri couldn't get a shot off as he charged goalkeeper Jaime Penedo.

Most eyes were on the Galaxy's Landon Donovan, who looked to have a shot in the box in the 39th minute but had the ball stolen.

Futty Danso's header for Portland in the 59th minute hit the far post.

Ricketts tipped a hard shot from Keane in the 82nd minute, but couldn't stop Keane's second shot in stoppage time.

The Galaxy finished with 21 shots to Portland's 10.
