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.
