CARSON, Calif. — Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored his 18th goal of the season and Los Angeles beat the Seattle Sounders 3-0 in Major League Soccer action Sunday for Dominic Kinnear’s first victory as the Galaxy’s interim coach.

Kinnear took over two weeks ago when L.A. coach Sigi Schmid resigned.

Seattle (13-11-5) has lost two straight after a nine-game winning streak.

Ibrahimovic opened the scoring in the ninth minute on a penalty kick. The Swede has 15 goals in his past 15 games. Ola Kamara drew the foul leading to the first goal and he made it 2-0 in the 40th with an easy tap-in at the far post.

Emmanuel Boateng capped the scoring with a goal in the 52nd by capitalizing on a defensive mistake.

The Galaxy entered with just four goals in the past six series meetings, going 0-3-3. Seattle hadn’t allowed multiple goals since June 30.

Seattle’s next game is Saturday at home against Colorado. The kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m.
