Sounders FC’s four-goal win matches largest margin of victory in team history

Seattle Sounders FC LogoSounders FC’s last goal Saturday, Obafemi Martins pouncing on a missed clearance by San Jose, capped a 4-0 win at CenturyLink Field. It was a bit of a fortunate play, but it allowed Seattle to match a club record for the largest margin of victory in an MLS game.

The Sounders, of course, have won a U.S. Open Cup games by a 5-0 score against Cal FC, but here is a look at the club’s biggest league wins:

4-0 — May 11, 2013 vs. San Jose Earthquakes
6-2 — Aug. 25, 2012 at Chivas USA
4-0 — Aug. 5, 2012 vs. Los Angeles Galaxy
6-2 — Aug. 27, 2011 vs. Columbus Crew
4-0 — Sept. 18, 2010 at Columbus Crew
3-0 — Oct. 7, 2012 vs. Portland Timbers
3-0 — Sept. 17, 2011 vs. D.C. United
3-0 — April 30, 2011 vs. Toronto FC
3-0 — June 5, 2010 vs. New England Revolution
3-0 — June 28, 2009 vs. Colorado Rapids
3-0 — March 19, 2009 vs. New York Red Bulls

You’ll notice only three separate scorelines are seen here, 6-2, 4-0 and 3-0. And besides the most recent big win (and maybe the franchise opener), any of these particularly stand out in your memory?
