NOTES: This is indeed Sounders FC’s 22nd lineup in 22 games in all competitions. Osvaldo Alonso is indeed back from missing four games with a quad strain. Marc Burch is starting in midfield, which is new. Servando Carrasco is starting his 11th straight MLS game (12 in all competitions). On the bench, a couple familiar names in Mauro Rosales and Jhon Kennedy Hurtado. No reason to think that’s not based on form. The combination of Eddie Johnson and Lamar Neagle up front has led to goals, we’ll see if that continues. Lastly, Brad Evans is playing his 100th MLS game for the Sounders.
