FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Teal Bunbury scored in stoppage time to break a scoreless tie and help give the New England Revolution a 2-0 victory over Sporting Kansas City on Saturday night.

Bunbury scored in the in 92nd minute, and Lee Nguyen scored from the spot in the 95th minute to keep the Revolution unbeaten (2-0-1) at home this season.

Kansas City went down to 10 men in the 74th minute when Aurelien Collin was red carded for a hard challenge on Diego Fagundez near the box. It marked the second straight game the Revolution benefited from an opponent's red card.

The Revolution broke through two minutes into stoppage time when Bunbury redirected Diego Fagundez's pass out of the reach of keeper Eric Kronberg.

Fagundez set up the second goal when he broke free and attempted to slip it through. But after his initial effort was denied by Kronberg, his subsequent header was handled by Uri Rossel, and a penalty was given to the Revolution. Moments later, Nguyen scored.

The Revolution snapped a six-game regular season winless streak (0-3-3) against Sporting Kansas City. They also scored their first goal against Kansas City since a 1-1 draw on July 30, 2011.

The Revolution have yet to give up a home goal this season through 270 minutes.

Saturday's clash was a rematch of last year's Eastern Conference semifinal series between the longtime MLS sides. Kansas City overtook the Revolution 4-3 on aggregate before going on to win the MLS Cup championship.

The Revolution were without left back Kevin Alston, who was suspended for the match after he was red carded in last Saturday's match at Chicago.
