Red Bulls win settles playoff lineup; Timbers out

The New York Red Bulls claimed the last open spot in the MLS playoffs tonight with a 1-0 win over the Philadelphia Union.

The result means that all 10 playoff teams are now known, and was bad news for Chicago and Portland, who had hopes for that final spot.

Some seeding issues remain unsettled heading into the final weekend of the regular season, most notably the Salt Lake/Dallas competitive to take (or avoid) the No. 3 spot in the West and the right to open the playoffs against the Sounders.
