Sorting Question

This is the JSON that I have to sort my index

"sort" : { "_score" : {} , "updated" : { "order" : "desc" } }

Where this works it pretty much only pays attention to the first sort field, so if _score is first that is the sort, and the dates on the results coming back are not sorted in date order. If I reverse the JSON to be this:

"sort" : {"updated" : { "order" : "desc" }, "_score" : {} }

The reverse is pretty much true. Is there a way to basically sort by _score highest to lowest then within that score by my date field "updated" newest to oldest?

I am thinking a nested sort might accomplish this, but I may be wrong here.
