After a rainy draw in Foxboro, Jon Sigal weighs in. Who deserves Man of the Match honors? Vote below.

Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

Teal Bunbury gave the Revolution an early lead over the defending MLS Cup Champs, though the advantage would not stand. Goals from Ignacio Maganto and Gyasi Zardes--and ultimately an equalizer from Diego Fagundez--led to a rainy draw in Foxboro. Who deserves Man of the Match honors? Vote below.

Rating Scale: 1.0 Goat → 10.0 Golden Boy

Starters

Bobby Shuttleworth - 4.5 (May Average: 6)

Jon: Ignacio Maganto's strike drew praise in the Revolution locker room after the game, but Bobby should have done better on it. As for the second goal, there's not much one can do when Gyasi Zardes is barreling down in a one-on-one situation.

London Woodberry - 5 (May Average: 6.42)

Jon: Had one scary moment on a fizzed in back pass in the first half, but otherwise was solid. Held his own against Maganto and whipped in a couple decent crosses that the towering Omar Gonzalez dealt with.

Andrew Farrell - 5.5 (May Average: 6.8)

Jon: Some fault him on Zardes' goal, but I attribute it more to the Galaxy's moment of brilliance than the defender's wrongdoing. Asserted himself throughout the contest and there was little to complain about.

Jose Goncalves - 5.5 (May Average: 5.94)

Jon: Much like Farrell, there was little that JoGo could do on either goal. LA threatened some and the Portuguese center back answered each time.

Kevin Alston - 5 (May Average: 4.56)

Jon: People have been giving Alston slack all season and he proved them wrong on Sunday evening. He wasn't stellar, but he was solid throughout the 90 minutes.

Scott Caldwell - 6.5 (May Average: 6.79)

Jon: A brilliant cross lead to a Revs opener and the midfielder worked tirelessly the whole night to chase down Galaxy players. Well done, sir.

Jermaine Jones - 5.5 (May Average: 5.08)

Jon: The U.S. international was having a decent game before he went down with a non-contact injury in the latter portions of the first half. Could he have been better? Sure, but you can't fault a guy for getting hurt.

Diego Fagundez - 5 (May Average: 4.94)

Jon: You have to give Diego credit for the free kick - it was brilliant. Outside of that, he was quiet at times and drifted in and out in terms of effectiveness.

Teal Bunbury - 6 (May Average: 6.33)

Jon: After failing to follow up on a similar play last week, Bunbury made the back post run and finished the Revs opener. In other aspects Teal was just as solid, as he covered a whole lot of ground and was dangerous in the attacking third.

Juan Agudelo - 5 (May Average: 6.08)

Jon: The attacker showed some flair and was a hair offsides in stoppage time in what appeared to be a golden chance for a winner. He wasn't poor by any means, but I think has to be more threatening over the course of 90 minutes.

Charlie Davies - 5 (May Average: 6.29)

Jon: The striker's nutmeg on Omar Gonzalez in the first half was as pretty as they come, but he has to finish the chance he had in the first couple of minutes.

Subs

Andy Dorman - 5 (May Average: 5.35)

Jon: Dorman was strong in possession, but got yet another yellow card. He also showed some willingness to attack, which was nice to see.

Kelyn Rowe - 4 (May Average: 5.42)

Jon: After many thought Rowe would get the start, he came off the bench and didn't offer much.

Daigo Kobayashi - 4.5 (May Average: 4.5)

Jon: It was nice to see the midfielder on the field again. He didn't have a whole ton of time to make an impact, so that's the only reason his rating isn't higher.
