Revolution waive left back Seth Sinovic

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. The New England Revolution waived second-year defender Seth Sinovic today.

Sinovic, 24, made 20 appearances as a rookie in 2010, with 18 starts. He played almost exclusively as a left back, with one start at right back. He did not make an appearance yet in 2011. The Revolution drafted the Leawood, Kan., product in the second round (25th overall) in the 2010 MLS SuperDraft out of Creighton University.

The Revolution (1-0-1, 4 pts.) will host the expansion Portland Timbers on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. The game will be telecast on Comcast SportsNet New England.

Agudelo's two goals lead Revs past Minnesota 5-2 in home opener

Juan Agudelo scored two goals to lead the Revolution to a 5-2 victory over Minnesota United in New England's home opener before 11,571 Saturday at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro.

Agudelo scored in the fourth and 41st minutes as the Revs - held to one goal in their first two games - picked up their first points of the season after opening with losses in Colorado and Dallas.

New England's original home opener, two weeks ago against Orlando, was postponed by cold weather. 

After Collen Warner's goal in the 15th minute tied it for expansion Minnesota, Kei Kamara (21st minute) and Lee Nguyen (penalty kick in the 32nd) made it 3-1 before Agudelo completed a four-goal outburst in the first half with his second goal of the game.

Nguyen's tally moved him into a tie with Steve Ralston for second place on the Revs career goals list with his 42nd. They trail Taylor Twellman (101).

Chris Tierney, playing in his 200th MLS game, all with the Revs, capped the scoring with a penalty-kick goal in the 52nd minute.

The Revs next play Sunday, April 2 on the road against the Portland Timbers.
