SEATTLE -- Obafemi Martins scored his 14th and 15th goals of the season to break the Seattle season record in the Sounders' 4-2 victory over Chivas USA on Saturday.
Martins scored in the first half to tie it at one and gave Seattle a two-goal lead in the second. He broke the team mark of 14 set by Eddie Johnson in 2012. Martins also assisted on Clint Dempsey's goal that put Seattle up 3-2 during first-half stoppage time.
The Sounders (18-9-3) snapped a two-game losing streak. With 57 points, they regained sole possession of first place in the West and in the race for the Supporters Shield ahead of Los Angeles. The Galaxy have 54 points and host New York on Sunday night.
A goal by Erick Torres and a Seattle own goal, both during the first half, were not enough to prevent Chivas USA (6-18-6) from losing its seventh straight game. Its winless streak reached 12 at 0-11-1.
Lamar Neagle also scored for Seattle, tying it at two in the 37th minute with his eighth of the year. Dempsey's goal 8 minutes later was his 13th.
