Red Bulls settle for scoreless tie

The Associated Press

HARRISON, N.J. - When the New York Red Bulls opened at home, Roy Miller wasn't even around.

The defender who made a key error last weekend didn't dress for Saturday's 0-0 tie against D.C. United.

Miller went to his native Costa Rica to prepare for the Ticos' World Cup qualifier on Friday against the United States at Commerce City, Colo.

"We gave him a few days to clear his head," said New York Coach Mike Petke, still in search of his first win with the Red Bulls at 0-1-2.

New York allowed late goals in its first two games at Portland and San Jose. Miller's hand ball led to a stoppage-time penalty kick at San Jose, and while Luis Robles saved Chris Wondolowski initial spot kick, Miller was called for encroachment, and Wondolowski scored on his retake.

Bill Hamid made eight saves for D.C. United (1-1-1).
