COMMERCE CITY, Colo. —

Oba Martin scored in the 27th minute to lead the Seattle Sounders to a 1-0 victory over the Colorado Rapids on Saturday.

Seattle (1-3-2) beat Colorado for the seventh straight time and got its first win of the season. The Sounders have scored just three goals while being shut out three times.

Colorado goalkeeper Clint Irwin stopped a shot from the slot by Shalrie Joseph. The ball bonded right back to Martin, who put the ball past the outstretched hands of Irvin for his first goal with Seattle.

Colorado (2-4-2) lost for the first time in three matches. Irwin had posted back-to-back shutouts.

The Rapids played without leading goal-scorer Deshorn Brown. The rookie forward suffered a thigh injury in Friday's practice and is expected to miss up to two weeks.
