Sounders vs. Revolution: By the numbers

Can't promise this will be a weekly feature, but as long as we kind find interesting numbers to share we'll be doing just that:

0: That's the number of points the Sounders had claimed in the previous three regular-season matches played without Osvaldo Alonso. The last time they won a game without him was July 3, 2013 against D.C. United. The Sounders are 7-12-3 all-time without Alonso.

3: With three goals scored, the Sounders equaled their most ever in a season opener. They also scored three against the New York Red Bulls in 2009 and against Toronto FC in 2012.

4: Clint Dempsey has now scored at least two goals in a game on four separate occasions with the Sounders. This was his first multi-goal game for them since April 26, 2014, though.

10: The Revolution have gone 2-10-1 in their past 13 games in which Jermaine Jones doesn't play. That's a record that stretches back to May 31, 2014, before Jones joined the Revs last August.

20: The Sounders improved to 20-0-0 in games that Obafemi Martins scores a goal.

36: Sounders intercepted 36 passes, which is a lot. By contrast the Revolution only had five. That's a total that was bested or equaled by Chad Marshall (8), Micheal Azira (7), Tyrone Mears (5) and Leo Gonzalez (5).

253: When Sean Okoli entered the field in the second half, there were three Federal Way products on the pitch together ... and two of them were playing for the Revolution. The others were Kelyn Rowe and, of course, Lamar Neagle.

39,782: Attendance on Sunday. It was the biggest crowd to see a Sounders season-opener, topping the previous best -- last year -- by about 540.
