Sounders FC jumps up to first in MLS in points per game

I’ve been referencing points-per-game a lot the past few weeks since the Sounders have played fewer games than everyone else in the Western Conference.

And following Wednesday’s 1-0 home win against Chivas USA, Seattle has the best PPG in MLS.

With every game, the Supporters’ Shield is looking more and more like a realistic goal for a team that was in last place in April after a worst-ever start.

Here is a look at how things stand leaguewide:
