For just the third time in club history, the Sounders lost at home by three or more goals to an MLS team. The Sounders’ 3-0 loss to the L.A. Galaxy also snapped Seattle’s six-game winning streak in league matches at CenturyLink Field on Monday.

That six-game stretch had matched a club record for consecutive home league wins that was set last season from July 28 to Sept. 13.

A crowd of 39,304 witnessed the 3-0 Sounders loss which was only the third time in franchise history that Seattle has lost an MLS game by three or more goals at home. The Sounders lost 4-0 to the Galaxy at home in 2010 and 4-1 to Vancouver last year.

“It hurts to lose at home,” said Sounders goalkeeper Stefan Frei. “We were on a good streak there. … But we’re going to show our character and bounce back. … Hopefully we can get on another streak.”

Remick returns as starter

It wasn’t all bad news for the Sounders, even after the 3-0 loss.

Dylan Remick, who has been hampered by injuries over the last few weeks, was in the starting lineup for the first time since May 3 and played 80 minutes. He subbed into Seattle’s match against Portland on July 13 for one minute, and also played in the friendly against Tottenham.

“Dylan Remick hasn’t played in a long time so it was a big game for him to come back into this game,” said Sounders coach Sigi Schmid.

Bad back keeps Marshall out

Chad Marshall, who was recently named to the MLS All-Star team, did not play Monday. He was rear-ended in a car accident on Saturday and was still having back spasms.

According to Sounders coach Sigi Schmid, Marshall was held out of practice on Sunday and felt better, but a sneeze on Monday morning sent him into back spasms.

Waiting for 200

Schmid will have to wait a little longer before he gets his 200th career win. He sits at 199 victories, and would be the first coach in MLS history to reach the 200-win mark.

Schmid bypassed Bob Bradley in 2009 to become the all-time winningest MLS coach.
