[MLS: Week 6] Chris Wondolowski joined fellow World Cup hopefuls Clint Dempsey (two goals), Kyle Beckerman and Maurice Edu on the scoreboard, but the San Jose Earthquakes had to settle for a 1-1 tie with the Columbus Crew that left it still without a win. After Week 6, five teams are still seeking their first win, more than double than in any of the last five years.

-- They include Portland and New York, last year's winners of the conference regular-season titles, both remain winless at 0-2-4 after six games. Mexican Erick Torres' fifth goal of the season, one behind Dempsey for the MLS scoring lead, earned Chivas USA a 1-1 tie with the Timbers, while New York could not recover from a fourth-minute goal by Davy Arnaud and fell at D.C. United, 1-0.

Winless through Week 6:
2014: Chicago (0-1-5), Montreal (0-3-3), New York (0-2-4), Portland (0-2-4), San Jose (0-2-2)
2013:
Seattle (0-3-2)
2012: Toronto FC (0-6-0)
2011: none.
2010: FC Dallas (0-1-4), D.C. United (0-5-0)
2009: Columbus (0-2-4), LA Galaxy (0-1-4)
2008: none.

DEMPSEY WATCH. Dempsey followed up on his hat trick at Portland with two goals for the Seattle Sounders in his Dallas homecoming, a 3-2 win at previously unbeaten FC Dallas. He scored on a free kick in the first half, watched as his pass across the area was deflected into the goal for own goal in the 75th minute and won the game himself 10 minutes later, finishing off a one-two with Chad Barrett. With five goals over the past two matches, Dempsey set the club record for most goals in back-to-back games.

In perhaps his best effort of the evening, a Dempsey volley also rattled the crossbar earlier in the second half.

“It’s always good to perform well in Texas,” he said after the game, "because that's where I developed my game in Nacogdoches and driving to Dallas playing my club ball. A lot of friends and family were here, and it's nice to perform well."
