MOST COMMENTED

[MLS GOLEADORES] San Jose's Chris Wondolowski hit a hat trick to increase his lead among MLS's top scorers and is on pace for his most productive MLS season. ... For video of Wondo's goals and the latest on the Golden Boot race ...

* Wondolowski's three goals in the Earthquakes' 5-0 win over Real Salt Lake gives him 17 on the season, six more than second-place Kenny Cooper, who hasn't hit the net for the New York Red Bulls since May 23.

* Wondolowski is averaging 0.94 goals a game. With 16 games left, he's easily on pace for his best MLS season and to be the first player to reach the 20-goal mark since Landon Donovan scored 20 in 2008.

* The 29-year-old Northern California product joined MLS in 2005 but in his first six seasons scored a total of only seven goals for the Houston Dynamo and San Jose.

* He won the Golden Boot in 2010 with 18 goals. Last season, he finished tied on 16 goals with D.C. United's Dwayne De Rosorio, who won the Golden Boot on the assist tiebreaker, having set up 12 goals to Wondolowski's three assists.

* Against Real Salt Lake on Saturday, Wondolowski assisted on Simon Dawkins' goal to give him four assists so far this season. His three assists last season had been the most of his MLS career in a season.
