SEATTLE -- Lamar Neagle scored twice and Mauro Rosales added a goal and an assist to help lead the Seattle Sounders FC to a 4-0 win over the San Jose Earthquakes on Saturday.

Neagle made it 3-0 in the 54th minute with a left-footed kick from just inside the box after he danced around a defender and gave Seattle (3-3-3) its highest scoring output of the season after scoring only three in the first eight games.

San Jose (3-4-5) dropped to 0-3-2 on the road this season. The Earthquakes had snapped a six-game winless streak Wednesday beating Toronto FC.

Neagle drilled a right-footed shot from the center of the box to the top left corner for the first goal of the game in the 28th minute. He tallied his first goal of the season off a chest pass from Rosales, who received a cross in the box from Eddie Johnson.
