The U.S. Open Cup is over for another season for the Revolution after falling to a 2-0 defeat to Philadelphia last night at the quarterfinal stage. The game was interrupted in the 61st minute due to severe weather in the area, but the Revs could not stage a dramatic comeback after taking shelter for over an hour.
