FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Kei Kamara scored twice, and Juan Agudelo added a late goal in the New England Revolution's 3-0 victory over the Philadelphia Union on Saturday night.

Kamara had his first multi-goal game since July 2016. He has seven goals this season

Kamara opened the scoring in the 38th minute, leaping to receive a high, arcing pass from Kelyn Rowe and beat goalkeeper John McCarthy. Kamara added his second in the 85th minute, and Agudelo put it out of reach with his eighth goal of the year four minutes later.

The Revolution (7-9-5) have won two straight following four consecutive losses.

Philadelphia (7-10-5) was playing without reigning MLS Goalkeeper of the Year Andre Blake. Blake suffered a hand injury for Jamaica in the Gold Cup final loss to the United States on Wednesday night.

Revolution eliminated from MLS is Back tournament after 1-0 loss to Union

The New England Revolution were eliminated from the MLS is Back tournament Saturday night as they suffered a 1-0 loss to the Philadelphia Union.

Sergio Santos scored in the 63rd minute to propel Philadelphia to the quarterfinals and snap the Revs' four-match unbeaten streak.

With midfielder Carles Gil out due to a foot injury, the Revs failed to get anything going offensively. Frustration boiled over after the game as New England coach Bruce Arena was handed a red card, presumably for comments made to the officials.
