Swansea City and Chivas Guadalajara tie


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Swansea City and Chivas Guadalajara played to a 1-1 tie in the first professional soccer game at Miller Park on Wednesday night.

Swansea scored first when Nathan Dyer controlled a cross from Marvin Emnes in the 57th minute and blasted a shot past goalkeeper Luis Ernesto Michel and inside the far post from 15 yards out. The Swans protected that lead with 10 players after Neil Taylor received a red card for a shoving incident in the 78th minute until Giovani Hernandez of Chivas scored on a penalty kick in the 90th minute.

The Milwaukee Brewers converted their infield and outfield into a pitch approved by Major League Soccer. It stretched between the warning track in left field and the first base line. Neither team had trouble with their footing despite the pitcher's mound and a layer of the dirt infield being removed and covered with sod.
