SEATTLE (AP) Landon Donovan assisted on Gyasi Zardes' goal in the eighth minute, then scored off a rebound 10 minutes later and led the Los Angeles Galaxy to an impressive 3-0 win over the Seattle Sounders on Monday night.

Donovan and the Galaxy won for the fourth time in six matches and handed the Western Conference-leading Sounders one of their worst home MLS losses in franchise history. Seattle lost 4-1 last season at home to Vancouver. The worst home defeat was a 4-0 loss to Los Angeles in 2010 that prompted Sounders management to offer refunds to fans.

Donavan added a second assist on Stefan Ishizaki's goal as he ran unmarked down the right side of the field and beat Seattle goalkeeper Stefan Frei to the far post.
