Behind goals from Diego Fagundez, Juan Agudelo and Chris Tierney—and two assists from Lee Nguyen—the Revolution clobbered visitors Orlando City SC on Saturday. Who deserves Man of the Match honors following the club's 3-0 win? Cast your vote below.

Rating Scale: 1.0 Goat → 10.0 Golden Boy

Starters

Bobby Shuttleworth - 5

Bobby probably could have read a magazine for the majority of the match and earned a shutout, though I can't fault him for having nothing to do. Even when left out of the action for prolonged stretches, he stayed active and focused, collecting 4 saves in a routine shift.

Jeremy Hall - 7

Hall has made the right back spot his own over the past few weeks. On Saturday, he proved why. The versatile defender stuck with Adrian Winter—OCSC's most active attacker—and made a handful of key interventions down the stretch. Should remain in the Starting XI moving forward.

Andrew Farrell - 8.5

Just a sensational performance from our August Player of the Month. Eight interceptions, 3 clearances, a big-time blocked shot—Farrell did it all on Saturday. Always placed himself in the right position, and always seemed to make the right decision. Memorable performance.

Jose Goncalves - 7.5

Goncalves turned in a quieter performance than his center-back partner, though his presence helped guide the Revolution to its third shutout in four matches. Amassed 7 clearances of his own en route to another solid performance in front of goal.

Chris Tierney - 9

Tierney's skillset comes alive when he features as a true wingback. Just check out his stat-line, which tells the story of an exceptional two-way performance: took 3 shots (2 on target), scored 1 goal (a classic Tierney finish) and connected on an astonishing 96.7% of his passes (including 3 key passes). Defensively, he added 4 clearances and a pair of tackles. And, in the 90th minute, he still looked as active as ever. Outstanding match.

Scott Caldwell - 7.5

Just another stellar performance from Mr. Consistency. Covered a tremendous amount of ground in the middle of the park and made life miserable for OCSC as they sought to build out of the middle.

Daigo Kobayashi - 6

Filling in for the absent Jermaine Jones, Kobayashi turned in a no-frills performance. Spurred on the attack with tidy passing and stood strong defensively as Lewis Neal & Co. tried to create attacking opportunities. With solid play over the past several weeks, Kobayashi has made Revolution fans completely forget about Andy Dorman.

Kelyn Rowe - 6

After fending off Juan Agudelo and Teal Bunbury for the fourth match in a row, Rowe built on his second-half resurgence with a strong performance from the right side of the pitch. Seemed to have more gas left in the tank than Fagundez when he left the field in the 76th minute, though Rowe just may have done enough to earn another start next weekend.

Lee Nguyen - 9

The midfield general turned in one of his best performances of the season on Saturday. Represented the most active player on the field—stringing together a remarkable 6 key passes—and played a critical role in all 3 goals. A little dink set up Diego's first-half finish, and a cheeky heel-flick created Tierney's extra-time goal. Sometimes I still wish he would distribute more (at his best, he could have gathered 2 more assists), though at this point I'm splitting hairs.

Diego Fagundez - 8

Another day, another goal for Diego. Late in the first half, a sensational near-post run—and a pair of skillful touches—opened the scoring for the Revolution, though Diego didn't stop there. Took a game-high 5 shots and somehow connected on 98.3% of his 59 passes. He did seem to wear down as the match carried on, though Diego has come on at the right time.

Charlie Davies - 6

Charlie looked sharp in hold-up play, but just never could find the back of the net. His substitution in the 67th minute for Juan Agudelo paid tribute to the Revolution's attacking depth.

Subs

Juan Agudelo - 6.5

Played 23 minutes, took 3 touches and scored a sitter. What more could we ask for? Made Jay Heaps look like a smart man for pulling the trigger on Davies, who offered a solid 67-minute performance.

Teal Bunbury - 6

Much like Agudelo, Bunbury made the most of his limited minutes. Received a well-weighted diagonal ball from Lee Nguyen in the waning moments and turned the pass into his third assist of the season.

Steve Neumann - N/A

The one-time supersub made a brief cameo, but didn't have an opportunity to make a mark on the match.

Bonus

Tally Hall - 8

The Orlando City goalkeeper deserves recognition for an exceptional performance against Nguyen and the Revolution. On a night when his club had little to offer, Hall amassed 6 saves—including a remarkable kick-save on Chris Tierney in the second frame.
