Revs trade for first pick in MLS draft

The New England Revolution have traded for the first pick in the MLS SuperDraft, which is being held at the Indiana Convention Center on Thursday, according to the team.
The Revs sent the fourth overall selection in the draft as well as allocation money to Toronto FC in exchange for the first overall pick.
Previously, the team's highest pick was second, which was used to select the club's all-time leading scorer, Taylor Twellman, in 2002.
ESPN will televise the first pick in the draft on Thursday at noon.

Gonzalo Veron scored in the 90th minute to give the New York Red Bulls a 3-2 victory over the New England Revolution on Wednesday night in the I-95 rivalry.

New York (8-8-2) is the first away team in the series to win since June 8, 2014. New England (5-9-5) lost its fourth consecutive game.

The Red Bulls scored the only two goals of the second half. Daniel Royer tied it at 2 in the 55th minute on a penalty kick, and Veron scored from the corner of the 18-yard box on a fast break.

The teams combined to score three goals in five minutes midway through the first half.

Teal Bunbury opened the scoring in the 21st minute with his first goal of the season for New England. Diego Fagundez dribbled along the 18-yard line and found Bunbury for a finish under Luis Robles' legs. Bradley Wright-Phillips tied it two minutes later with his ninth goal of the season on a volley from distance. Three minutes later, Lee Nguyen gave the Revolution the lead on a close-range chip shot.
