Inter Miami beaten by DC United despite Pizarro netting franchise's first ever MLS goal
Coming off a defeat to Los Angeles FC, Inter Miami went down to DC United 2-1 on Saturday.
Rodolfo Pizarro scored the first MLS goal in the club's history, sweeping in a Lewis Morgan cross to give them the lead in just the second minute.
However, the game turned early in the second half when, after Morgan thought he had doubled his side's lead, the visitors had the goal ruled out and Román Torres sent off for a handball.
DC equalised through Yamil Asad's penalty in the 59th minute before finding what proved to be the winner just after the hour-mark.
Edison Flores hit the post with a free-kick and Frédéric Brillant reacted quickest to fire in the rebound and lift DC to their first win of the season.
LA Galaxy are without a win through two games after suffering a 1-0 loss at home to the Vancouver Whitecaps.
Tosaint Ricketts' smart side-footed finish in the 74th minute was enough for the Whitecaps.
Joe Corona was then sent off for Galaxy, who were beaten despite David Bingham later saving a Lucas Cavallini penalty.
Without the injured Josef Martínez, Atlanta United made it two wins from two by beating Cincinnati 2-1.
