In a largely forgettable game, the Revs beat the Dynamo 2-1.

Why was it so unremarkable? Mainly because it was a generally sloppy game, a game that raises the further question: Why was the level of play so subpar?

On the Revs' side, possibly because coach Jay Heaps made a calculated decision that, with his team already in the playoffs, he could afford to start four second-stringers (Patrick Mullins, Steve Neumann, Scott Caldwell, and Darrius Barnes), while resting starters (Jermaine Jones and Charlie Davies).
