MILWAUKEE – Giovani Hernandez scored on a penalty kick in the 90th minute, lifting Chivas Guadalajara into a 1-1 tie with Swansea City in the first professional soccer game at Miller Park on Wednesday night.
Swansea scored first in the exhibition match when Nathan Dyer controlled a cross from Marvin Emnes in the 57th minute and shot past goalkeeper Luis Ernesto Michel and inside the far post from 15 yards. The Swans lost Neil Taylor and Chivas saw Jesus Sanchez ejected in the 80th minute for a shoving incident.
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 the footing despite the pitcher's mound and a layer of the dirt infield being removed and covered with sod.
