Lee Nguyen and Scott Caldwell’s nifty two-pass combo freed Bunbury to double the lead with a right-footed strike in the 60th minute.

The Revolution improved to 17 points, putting them in a tie for first in the MLS with FC Dallas and D.C. United.

Sacha Kljestan pulled the Red Bulls (3-1-4) within one in the 73rd minute, dribbling past New England goalkeeper Bobby Shuttleworth and finishing into the open net.

The Red Bulls had been the last unbeaten team in MLS.
