CARSON, Calif. – It took just 33 seconds for the Colorado Rapids to begin a painful slide to their club record-breaking seventh defeat in a row, as the LA Galaxy ran riot on Friday night with a 6-0 win - the heaviest loss suffered by the Rapids in franchise history.

Landon Donovan converted two penalties and assisted two more goals, climbing within four of Steve Ralston’s career MLS assists record, and Gyasi Zardes and Baggio Husidic added two goals apiece as LA (14-5-7) romped to their fifth straight victory for the first time since 2007.

And then there were three. Conor McGahey and Richard Fleming are joined on the Rapids Podcast by club skipper, Drew Moor, who is recovering from surgery following an ACL tear, which ended his 2014 season.

In an extended episode, the trio cover a multitude of topics, including the 1-0 loss at Seattle Sounders, the upcoming trip to LA Galaxy, defensive improvements, the race for the playoffs, Fleming's goalkeeper challenge, and the correct pronunciation of Bernard.

But for one momentary lapse at a set-piece, the Colorado Rapids would have returned from league-leading Seattle Sounders with a well-fought point, thereby ending the run of defeats and avoiding a club record-equaling sixth loss in a row.

One split-second switch-off proved costly, and was all the Sounders needed to send the Rapids home with nothing to show for their toil.

Pablo Mastroeni - Colorado Rapids Head Coach
On why he chose Nasco over Irwin:
Really it was just to give Irwin a break. I think anytime you are conceding that many goals as a team, it plays on a player's psyche - much like a forward that just can't find the back of the net after so many games. It was a good opportunity to give Nasco some time.

SEATTLE -- For the Seattle Sounders, one was enough on Saturday afternoon, as they condemned the Colorado Rapids to a club record-equaling sixth defeat in row.

Clint Dempsey tallied a highlight-reel 52nd-minute goal off a Marco Pappa corner kick and the Seattle defense took care of the rest, paving the way for a 1-0 victory over the Rapids at CenturyLink Field.
