OURENSE, Spain -- Chris Froome had a successful start to the Spanish Vuelta with Sky winning the team time trial as the grand tour got underway Saturday.Sky picked up from helping Froome win his third Tour de France in July by completing the 27.8-kilometer (17.2-mile) trial in 30 minutes, 37 seconds, just ahead of rival Movistar.While Nairo Quintanas Movistar held its own, the Tinkoff team of three-time Vuelta champion Alberto Contador came in 52 seconds off Skys pace.Starting the Vuelta with a 50-second deficit on your main rivals is difficult, but Im satisfied with how we raced. It will be a long Vuelta, said Tinkoff sport director Steven De Jongh. Alberto was feeling good which is the most important thing for us and we now look to tomorrows stage.Sky rider Peter Kennaugh will wear the red leaders jersey during Sundays second stage, a 160.8-kilometer (99.9-mile) ride from Ourense to Baiona, which includes one category-three climb at the midway point.Kennaugh said that his teams strong start to the team trial was key to taking the race initiative.Sometimes were a bit cautious and riders want to start off easier, but at the end of the day a team time trial is not supposed to be easy, Kennaugh said. You cant just give away 10 seconds in the first five kilometers as youll never get it back.The 21-stage race ends in Madrid on Sept. 11. Trace McSorley Jersey .500 on the season.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- A pair of former Oakland As standouts turned into rotation reclamation projects will try to pitch their clubs into the All-Star break on a winning note Sunday.A few years ago both Minnesotas Tommy Milone and Texas A.J. Griffin were the future of Oaklands rotation. Those days are gone, but both have found new life with their new organizations this year as they head into their start against each other Sunday.Griffin is 3-0 with a 3.06 ERA in his nine starts with Texas. He was 3-0 with a 3.38 ERA before going on the disabled list in early May for six weeks with right shoulder stiffness. Since returning from the DL he has a 3.38 ERA in three starts but has pitched a total of 13 1/3 innings.The right-hander knows he has to pitch deeper into games, especially for a Texas rotation that came into Saturday with a seven-game stretch of no starter pitching more than five innings.Ive tried to be as competitive as I can be and tried to minimize damage, said Griffin, who is coming off a four-inning outing against Boston in which he threw 96 pitches. I pitched out of some situations and it could have been worse. Ive got to try and get some quicker outs and pound the zone. I know what Im capable of doing.While Griffin has been solid when healthy for the Rangers all season, Milone has come on strong recently for a Minnesota that has started to find its stride.The lefty Milone (1-2), who won 25 games while he was a teammate with Griffin in Oakland in 2012 and 2013, is coming off his first win of the season on July 5.dddddddddddd He allowed one run over six innings in an 11-4 win over Los Angeles. It matched the longest start of the year for Milone, who was outrighted after a slow start to the season. But since coming back from Triple A last month, hes made three starts and has allowed one earned run in two of them.Hes helped spark a rotation that came into Saturdays game against Texas 7-3 with a 3.33 ERA over the last 14 games.Its something you want to build on, Minnesota manager Paul Molitor said of the pitching. Were certainly not content by any means. Offensively, weve kind of smoothed out a little bit in terms of fairly comfortable that were going to have a chance to score almost every day. You kind of combine that with the fact that weve gotten the best stretch of starting pitching that weve had all season, and its reflected in winning a few more games here as of late.Both pitchers would like to pitch their team into the break on a winning note too. Theres nothing wrong with having four days off to savor a win.Its huge to be able to take that momentum going into the second half, Griffin said. Weve had a long go, without much time off, we just want to win this one and send us into the break. ' ' '
