Gabriel Torres scored his second goal of the game in the 77th minute, lifting Colorado to a 3-2 victory over the Vancouver Whitecaps on Saturday night that moved the Rapids into a tie for third place in the Western Conference.
Torres' left-footed shot came two minutes after Camilo Sanvezzo tied the game with a penalty kick that was awarded when Jordan Harvey was hauled down in the scoring area.
Deshorn Brown added a goal for Colorado (14-10-9). Its 51 points, a franchise best, tied it with Seattle and Los Angeles in the West.
Kebuta Manneh also scored for Vancouver (12-12-9), which had its two-game road winning streak snapped and was eliminated from playoff contention.
