Daily coverage of Seattle Sounders FC, MLS and world soccer.

April has been a kind month to the Sounders the past four years

Disclaimer: This is one of those stats that really doesn’t mean too much, but I’m a numbers guy, so I still find it interesting, especially when MLS records are involved.

The Sounders have not lost in April since 2010 and are on a 8-0-5 undefeated run in the month. Believe it or not, 13 games without defeat is a league record for April (the Los Angeles Galaxy went 12 games, 6-0-6, from 2009-11). For Seattle, nine of those games were on the road.

Thirteen games has also matched the MLS record for the longest unbeaten streak in any month — New York Red Bulls (May, 2011-13) and San Jose (June 2003-08*).

* — did not play in 2006 and 2007

So again, I don’t think this is an indicator for long-term April success, just interesting:
