It continued Martinez's amazing run and was his 22nd goal in MLS this season, Atlanta winning a fourth straight league game and pulling three points clear atop the Eastern Conference.

Cristian Roldan tapped in the opener midway through the first half before Raul Ruidiaz side-footed in a Jordan Morris cross in the 47th minute.

Diego Valeri's deflected 54th-minute free-kick brought Portland back into the derby clash, but they were unable to find an equaliser.

Portland are seventh in the Western Conference.
