The Los Angeles Galaxy suffered their most lopsided loss in 11 seasons as they fell to the New England Revolution, 5-0, on the road. Two of the Revolution's goals came in extra time.

The Galaxy's last 5-point loss came on June 15, 2002, against the New York Red Bulls. It was the third consecutive victory for the Revolution this season.

Openly gay player Robbie Rogers played 24 minutes in the contest, taking one shot on goal.

Since Rogers was signed by Los Angeles, the Galaxy are 1-2 in three games. They beat the Seattle Sounders at home a week ago in Rogers' debut, 4-0, then lost two on the road including a 2-0 loss to the Carolina RailHawks, a second-tier team.

Missing from the match for the Galaxy was Robbie Keane, the team's No. 2 scorer on the season and their top goal-scorer on the current roster. The Galaxy traded their top scorer this season to the Chicago Fire in a deal to acquire Rogers.
