FOXBOROUGH — All you need to know about the Revolution’s 3-1 win over the San Jose Earthquakes Saturday night in quickie form, complete with BSJ insight and analysis:


Revolution snap skid with win coming against the run of play: Despite having the ball for just over a quarter of the match (26.7 percent), New England did enough with it. The Revs scored three goals on three shots on-target, including a penalty, to cruise past visiting San Jose. It also marked the seventh straight time New England has gained a result against the Earthquakes. The win may have snapped a four-match winless skid, but it did not help get the Revs out of the Eastern Conference basement thanks to FC Cincinnati’s 2-1 win over Montreal earlier in the day.

Agudelo, Penilla stake Revs to 2-0 lead: New England came out in response to Brad Friedel’s sacking the way many expected.
