SEATTLE (AP) — Brad Smith scored one goal and assisted on another, Raúl Ruidíaz scored twice, and the Seattle Sounders stymied Javier Hernández and the Los Angeles Galaxy in a 3-0 win.

Seattle remained unbeaten on the young season, getting a pair of goals 3 minutes apart in the first half and keeping Chicharito from continuing his early-season scoring barrage. 

Ruidíaz volleyed a cross from Smith past Galaxy goalkeeper Jonathan Bond for Seattle's first goal. 

Smith scored the second moments later and Ruidíaz added a third in second-half stoppage time. 

Hernández had five goals in the first two games for the Galaxy but was shut down by the Sounders.
