NEW YORK — Nigeria international Obafemi Martins scored two goals as the Seattle Sounders extended New York City FC's winless streak with a 3-1 victory in Major League Soccer on Sunday.

Clint Dempsey added another goal for Seattle, which won its third straight game — and fourth in its last five.

NYCFC hasn't won since beating the New England Revolution 2-0 at home on March 15. It's had five losses and two draws since then.

Martins ran down a through ball and slotted a breakaway goal in the 23rd minute. He then beat goalkeeper Josh Saunders in the 66th minute after receiving a back-heel pass from Dempsey.

NYCFC's Mehdi Ballouchy got the equalizer in the 54th minute.

In Sunday's other game, Paulo Nagamura headed in a goal in the 75th minute to lead Sporting Kansas City to a 1-0 win over the Chicago Fire.

Sporting KC got its first win since April 5, while Chicago had its three-game winning streak halted.
