Orlando City's Seb Hines (3) and Dom Dwyer (18) had the Revolution's Kei Kamara (23) outnumbered off a corner kick.

ORLANDO — Kaka had two goals, Yoshimar Yotun and Dominic Dwyer each had a goal and two assists and struggling Orlando City walloped the shorthanded Revolution, 6-1, on Wednesday night.

Lee Nguyen scored his 11th goal on a brilliant free kick in first-half stopped time for New England (11-14-5), which has allowed 28 goals in losing its last eight road games. The Revolution are in eighth place, five points below the line.

Xavier Kouassi was sent off for the Revolution with a red card in the 11th minute after he fouled Seb Hines. Kouassi won the ball, but his follow through went into Hines’s legs and the referee went to the video to deem the foul serious.
