TORONTO (AP) – Amado Guevara scored twice and Dwayne DeRosario added a goal as Toronto FC beat New England 3-1 on Saturday and stretched the Revolution’s winless streak to six games.

Guevara scored with a hard shot from the edge of the area in the first half, then looped a free kick into the far corner in the second half, giving him a team-high five goals.

DeRosario scored on a second-half breakaway for Toronto (4-3-4), which has lost once in six games. Shalrie Joseph scored for New England (2-3-4), which has not won since beating FC Dallas at home on April 4.

Joseph and Steve Ralston started up front for the second straight game, part of coach Steve Nicol’s plan to boost New England’s stagnant offense.

The Revolution had scored an MLS-low seven goals entering the game, but they took a 1-0 lead in the 13th minute when Joseph met Chris Tierney’s cross and sent a glancing header into the far corner. It was Joseph’s team-leading third goal and New England’s second first-half score of the season.

Toronto tied it 80 seconds later when Guevara took a short pass from Danny Dichio at the edge of the penalty box and blistered a high shot over the hands of goaltender Matt Reis.

Dichio was also the playmaker on Toronto’s second goal, sending DeRosario in all alone with a pass from the center circle. The speedy winger did the rest, racing into the area and scoring with a low shot under the defenseless Reis. Reis returned to New England’s lineup after missing last week’s game against Colorado because of a concussion.

Real Salt Lake 0, United 0

WASHINGTON (AP) – Real Salt Lake limited D.C. United to one shot on goal in a 0-0 tie Saturday night to earn its first point on the road.

Real (3-5-2), which was outscored 7-0 while losing its first four road matches, extended its winless streak to 0-4-2). United (3-1-7) began the day as the highest-scoring team in MLS with 17 goals. D.C. is now unbeaten in its last seven (2-0-5) and improved to 3-0-2 all-time at home against Salt Lake.
