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.
