Revolution's winless skid extended to nine games

FOXBORO -- It's officially been two full months since the New England Revolution have won a game, thanks to Sunday night's 3-0 loss to the Philadelphia Union at Gillette Stadium.

Carlos Ruiz scored in the 12th minute, Carlos Valdes added another in the 24th, and Sheanon Williams scored in the 93rd minute to give Philadelphia all it needed on this night.

Not having won since May 14, frustration set in for the Revolution on the field in the second half, as Benny Feilhaber was ejected for picking up his second yellow card of the game. Feilhaber was then involved in a pushing match with Ruiz at midfield, which sent the Revs' midfielder off the field with some heated words for his opponents.

FOXBORO -- Diego Fagundez scored two goals in 10 minutes and the New England Revolution rallied from an early deficit to beat the Columbus Crew 2-1 on Sunday.

Fagundez has scored all three of his goals this season in the last two games. The Revolution (3-4-4) have back-to-back wins, for the first time this season, after a five-match winless streak.

A 22-year-old homegrown, Fagundez ran onto a free ball on the left flank, sped up and pushed home the finish into the far corner in the 34th minute to cap the scoring.

Just outside the box, Ola Kamara side-netted a running half-volley - off a perfectly placed pass by Wil Trapp from well-beyond midfield - to give Columbus (6-5-1) a 1-0 lead in the 20th minute. After a turnover by the Crew in their own territory, Fagundez tied it moments later. Kelyn Rowe won the ball, tapped it to Lee Nguyen, who hit a streaking Kei Kamara for a one-timer that set up a tap-in half-volley.

Cody Cropper had his second consecutive shutout, including four saves, for New England.

Andrew Farrell was sent off for a stud-up challenge on Waylon Francis in the third minute of injury time.
