HOUSTON (AP) — Tomas Martinez scored in the 63rd minute and his free kick in the 77th led to an own goal, helping the Houston Dynamo beat Sporting Kansas City 2-1 on Wednesday night. Houston (12-10-10) moved within one point of a third-place tie with Portland and Seattle. Second-place Sporting KC (12-8-12) needed at least a draw to secure a playoff spot. Only Vancouver, three points ahead of Sporting KC, has secured a playoff spot in the Western Conference. Martinez tied it at 1 by volleying home a deflected cross and the Dynamo took the lead on Erik Palmer-Brown’s own goal. Martínez’s free kick was placed inside the 6-yard box and Palmer-Brown knocked it in with his right leg. Jimmy Medranda
