  • FCD is sixth in the West, one point out of the playoff spots. Seattle is second.
  • Since 2009, no team has a better record from July 1 onward than Seattle (.689 winning percentage from a 31-11-11 record).
  • In a 6-2 win over Chivas USA was the first time Seattle broke the five-goal barrier in MLS. Mauro Rosales recorded three assists in that match, moving up to first in the league standings with 13 this season.
  • In his 100th MLS start, Fredy Montero scored his first league hat trick, last week. His midweek goal in the 3-1 CONCACAF Champions League win over Caledonia took him to eight goals in the past seven matches.
  • Sandwiched between losses to the LA Galaxy, Dallas went on a five-game unbeaten run, winning four of those matches.
