Gyasi Zardes has no trouble recalling the last time he played in a soccer game.
“August 27,” he answers without hesitation.
What he can’t remember with any certainty is the last time he went more than six months without playing in one.
“Maybe high school?” the Galaxy forward guesses. “Like 10th grade?”
That layoff won’t end Saturday when the Galaxy, seeking its first win of the MLS season, goes on the road for the first time to visit Real Salt Lake (6:30 p.m., SpectrumSN, Spectrum Deportes). But if dealing with the foot and knee injuries that idled him has been difficult, Zardes says watching the team struggle without him has been just as hard.
