CARSON, Calif. -- Justin Braun and Paulo Nagamura scored in the first half and Zach Thornton made three saves for his fifth shutout of the season in Chivas USA's 2-0 victory over the New England Revolution on Friday night.

Chivas USA (7-12-4) won for the second time in three games, while the Revolution (7-13-3) have lost five of six, including the final of the SuperLiga tournament.

Braun opened the scoring in the sixth minute with his ninth goal. Alan Gordon passed from the right flank to Braun, who beat defender Darrius Barnes and converted a diagonal 10-yard shot inside the left post.

Gordon also set up Nagamura's first goal of the season in the 36th minute. With his back to the goal, Gordon took Michael LaHoud's pass and sent the ball to Nagamura, whose 19-yard shot deflected off diving goalkeeper Matt Reis' right hand.

Nagamura last scored May 28, 2009, against Chicago. He spent the first half of the season with Mexico's UNL Tigres before Chivas USA reacquired him June 25.

Lewis scores in stoppage time, NYCFC beats Revolution, 2-1

NEW YORK - Jonathan Lewis scored in stoppage time to help New York City FC beat the New England Revolution 2-1 on Sunday for its third straight victory.

The 20-year-old rookie has scored his only two MLS goals in back-to-back games.

Villa trapped a long cross from RJ Allen on the left side and dropped it to Ben Sweat, who first-timed a left footer to Lewis at the top of the 6-yard box for the finish in the fourth minute of injury time.

Teal Bunbury put away a rebound to open the scoring for New England (8-11-5) in the 57th minute. Andrew Farrell's shot from distance backed up goalkeeper Sean Johnson against the goal line, where he spilled the stop and Bunbury scored from point-blank range. It was his fifth goal in the last five games. Villa tied it for NYC (14-7-4) in the 77th with his MLS-leading 19th goal.

The Revolution are winless in their last 14 road games, a franchise record.

Bunbury, Revolution beat Whitecaps, 1-0

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Teal Bunbury scored his fourth goal in five matches, helping the New England Revolution beat the Vancouver Whitecaps 1-0 on Saturday night.

Each of New England's seven wins has come at home. The Revolution (7-10-5) are 0-8-3 on the road.

Bunbury finished a nice passing sequence in the 53rd minute. Kelyn Rowe, near midfield, tapped a goal kick by Vancouver's Stefan Marinovic to Kei Kamara, who tapped it back to Rowe on the right side for the feed to a charging Bunbury just outside the 6-yard box.

Cody Cropper had two saves for his sixth shutout of the season.

Vancouver (9-8-4) had its three-game road unbeaten streak snapped.
