Toronto FC became the first team to clinch a berth in the MLS playoffs when it beat the San Jose Earthquakes, 4-0. Now, the runaway Supporters' Shield leader has six games to break an assortment of league records.

-- Its 59 points are only nine away from the MLS single-season record set by the LA Galaxy in 1998.
-- Its nine-point margin over second-place NYCFC in the Supporters' Shield race is one less than the record of 10 points by which the Galaxy won the 1998 Supporters' Shield race.
-- Its 17 wins are three less than the record of 20 set by the Seattle Sounders in 2014.
-- Its three losses will be the fewest in MLS history if it goes unbeaten the rest of the way.

Toronto FC has won its last five games by a margin of 17-3 and is unbeaten in 10 games.

Toronto FC coach Greg Vanney:
"We’ve got guys who can score goals, we’ve got guys that can set up goals.  We have a lot of good pieces to work with and so as the season has progressed we’ve gotten better and that’s been our goal over the course of the year.
