Chris Tierney loves playing for his hometown team.

Given the turbulent nature of MLS, it's rare to see a player stay with the same team for long, which is why it's so special that Chris Tierney is now in his 10th season with the New England Revolution.

On Saturday, Tierney made his 200th start for the Revs, an achievement few will ever reach.

Instead, it was another lopsided loss, this time on the road at New England. The Revolution opened their home schedule with a 5-2 win.
