Substitute Olmes Garcia scored in the 89th minute and Real Salt Lake rallied for a 2-1 win over the New England Revolution on Wednesday night.

Devon Sandoval tied the score for Salt Lake (5-4-2) in the 77th minute at Gillette Stadium, scoring on a rebound after Revolution goalkeeper Bobby Shuttleworth stopped a shot by Sebastian Velasquez.

Ryan Guy opened the scoring for the Revolution (2-4-3) in the 51st minute, sending a volley into the lower corner from the top of the box off a cross from Kelyn Rowe.

New England had a chance to equalize when RSL defender Carlos Salcedo gave up a penalty kick and was ejected in stoppage time, but Saer Sene hit the penalty weakly and Nick Rimando made the save with a dive to his right.

The win kept Salt Lake unbeaten against the Revolution in their last six matches, a span that dates to 2009. Salt Lake jumped to second in the West with the victory, while the Revolution remained in seventh in the East.
