Silva was making just his second start since May 26. He finished off a pass from Danny Koevermans, who threaded the ball through a trio of Revolution defenders.

Silva delivered the ball past New England goalie Bobby Shuttleworth, making just his second start of the season, into the lower right corner of the net.

New England (6-8-4) was shut out for the sixth time this season. Toronto goalie Milos Kocic made six saves and denied the Revolution on eight second-half corner kicks.

Toronto improved to 2-6-2 on the road this season and has surged since Paul Mariner took over as head coach on June 7, the club having just one loss (3-1-4) over its past eight outings.
