Starters

Bobby Shuttleworth - 9

In his best outing of the season, Shuttleworth made three game-changing saves to lock down a road point. Heaps has played the hot hand in recent weeks; will he feature Shuttleworth against Philadelphia on Wednesday?

Andrew Farrell - 6

On Saturday, Farrell flashed his skill over the ball and positioned himself well on crosses and set pieces. His lone hiccup arrived on a deep run by defender Demar Phillips, who beat Farrell to the endline and nearly set up a go-ahead goal.

Jose Goncalves - 7

To cap a strong all-around effort, JoGo denied Yura Movsisyan with a physical challenge as the forward dribbled into the box alone. The Portuguese center back appears in-tune with new partner London Woodberry.

London Woodberry - 6.5

Woodberry put forth another solid effort on Saturday, this time against an RSL side that took 14 shots and constantly knocked on the door of a go-ahead goal. In the end, Woodberry collected a tackle, two clearances and a big-time blocked shot.

Je-Vaughn Watson - 6

Watson had his hands full with Juan Manuel Martinez, who was slippery over the ball, strong in possession and dangerous in the attacking third (he created a game-high 4 goal-scoring chances). Yet Watson still held his own, turning in a physical, hard-fought shift while playing in another "new" position.

Scott Caldwell - 6

Though not his best performance of the season—he committed a few sloppy fouls (4 in total) and had a tough time with Martinez's skill over the ball—Caldwell turned in a positive, 90-minute shift. He even connected on an impressive 3 of 4 long balls out of the defensive midfield.

Daigo Kobayahsi - 6.5

Daigo came flying out of the gate, using his energy to spur the attack (his 96 percent passing completion led all starters) and hold down the fort defensively (he led the Revs with 3 interceptions). Though not flashy, Daigo has put together another strong campaign for the Revs in 2016.

Kelyn Rowe - 5

Rowe hit a pair of off-target shots before being pulled for Diego Fagundez in the 61st minute. Unfortunately, despite his sound movement in the attacking third, Rowe took just 20 touches and struggled to consistently involve himself in the attack.

Lee Nguyen - 6.5

Nguyen looked sharp moving forward, working hard in possession while offering much-needed creativity (he tied Martinez with a game-high 4 chances created). Sadly, he failed to pick up an assist on any of his 9 crosses, though he did save a goal with a headed clearance.

Teal Bunbury - 6.5

Quietly, Bunbury turned in one of his best shifts of the season against RSL. He dominated 50/50 balls, created a pair of goal-scoring chances and worked hard defensively, collecting a pair of interceptions.

Kei Kamara - 5.5

Kamara will always earn praise for his high work rate. But on Saturday, he looked just a step off his normal pace—partly due to a lack of opportunities, and partly due to a strong defensive effort from RSL. Kamara made dangerous runs at goal, but struggled to latch onto crosses, as he has done so effortlessly this season.

Subs

Diego Fagundez - 6.5

After a quiet shift from Rowe, Fagundez entered the match and immediately brought life to the Revolution attack. He covered a tremendous amount of ground in the attacking third, made dangerous runs into the box and looked strong in possession.

Chris Tierney - 5

Brought into the match to offer service from the flank, Tierney whipped four crosses into the box. Unfortunately, none of them found a target.

Femi Hollinger-Janzen - N/A

With seven minutes to go in regulation, Femi entered the match with a full head of steam. Though he ultimately didn't have enough time to impact the match, he fought hard to create a late game-winner.
