Jonathan Lewis was credited with the lone goal, and the Colorado Rapids increased their home unbeaten streak to 23 matches with a 1-0 victory over the Seattle Sounders on Sunday night in Commerce City, Colo.
Goalkeeper William Yarbrough made two saves while recording his sixth shutout of the season for Colorado (5-5-3, 18 points). Yarbrough also matched the franchise career record of 23 shutouts set by Tim Howard (2016-19).
Seattle (4-6-1, 13 points) had trouble creating offensive chances as its two-game winning streak ended. The Rapids outshot the Sounders 16-9 and put four shots on target to Seattle’s three.
Seattle had a free kick in the fifth minute of second-half stoppage time, but Ruidiaz kicked the ball into the wall of Colorado defenders. The ball caromed back to him, and Ruidiaz again kicked the ball into the wall as the Rapids finished off the win.
