NEW YORK -- Dellin Betances, Didi Gregorius and the rest of the diminished New York Yankees hardly resembled a team resigned to quietly fading away this summer.Starlin Castro hit a sacrifice fly in the 10th inning and the Yankees, after selling off stars at the trade deadline, showed plenty of spunk while rallying past the Mets 6-5 on Monday night in their Subway Series opener.Just tells you that the guys we have in here dont give up, starter CC Sabathia said. Its going to be tough ... but we have the guys in here to battle and try to get back in this thing.Gregorius hit a tying single with two outs in the eighth and Betances worked out of a major jam for his first save this season. Hours after trading slugger Carlos Beltran and pitcher Ivan Nova before the non-waiver deadline, the Yankees (53-52) snapped a four-game slide and won for the seventh time in the past nine meetings with their crosstown rivals.Its been a tough week for us. Weve lost some unbelievable guys in our clubhouse, Betances said. Been an up-and-down year. So it was nice to get a victory.Wilmer Flores and rookie Matt Reynolds homered for the skidding Mets, who lost their fifth in six games as fans in the sellout crowd of 42,125 traded chants throughout the night following a hectic afternoon at Citi Field.Earlier in the day, the defending NL champions completed deals to land All-Star outfielder Jay Bruce and reacquire left-hander Jon Niese.We got ourselves where we wanted to be, manager Terry Collins said after his team tried to rally against Betances. We just couldnt finish it off.Jacoby Ellsbury drew a four-pitch walk from rookie Seth Lugo (0-1) leading off the 10th and went to second on Mark Teixeiras single. A fired-up Ellsbury beat Lugos throw to third on pinch-hitter Ben Gamels sacrifice, loading the bases.Gregorius struck out, but Ellsbury scored easily when Castro hit a long fly to the right-center warning track.I thought the effort was great, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said.Betances, the new closer after the Yankees jettisoned predecessors Aroldis Chapman and Andrew Miller within the past week, came through in his first save chance since those deals -- but not without some tense moments and a visit from Girardi.James Loney hit a leadoff double and the Mets had runners at the corners when Rene Rivera hit a comebacker for the second out. With two men in scoring position, Betances struck out Curtis Granderson on three pitches for his 11th career save.It was fun, Betances said. Obviously, not a 1-2-3 inning. But I got out of it.Adam Warren (1-0) worked two hitless innings in his first win for the Yankees since they reacquired him from the Chicago Cubs in the Chapman trade.Playing again without ailing slugger Yoenis Cespedes, the Mets took a 5-3 lead in the sixth when Reynolds -- just recalled from the minors -- connected for a three-run homer off Sabathia.Gregorius fought back from an 0-2 count and tied it at 5 with a soft, two-run single off setup man Addison Reed after his costly wild pitch.Reed had not allowed a run since June 25, a career-best streak that lasted more than 16 innings. During that stretch, he struck out 26 and gave up only seven hits.He made a good pitch, Collins said. Its one of those things where they hit it where nobody was standing. But well regroup.The third-place Mets dropped to 2-6 on their nine-game homestand and lost for the ninth time in their last 11 at Citi Field.OFF AND RUNNINGThe Subway Series got off to a bang when speedy Brett Gardner hit the second pitch to the center-field fence 408 feet away and tried for an inside-the-park home run after the ball caromed away from Mets center fielder Justin Ruggiano. Granderson, alertly backing up, started a 9-4-2 relay that cut down Gardner at the plate as he attempted to score with a headfirst slide.MATZ BATSWith the banged-up Mets short on the bench, pitcher Steven Matz was sent up as a pinch-hitter in the sixth. He walked on a full count, ending Sabathias night.ROSTER MOVESTo replace Beltran and Nova on the roster, the Yankees recalled Gamel and RHP Nick Goody from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Goody retired No. 3 hitter Neil Walker on a shallow fly with the bases loaded to end the sixth, keeping the Yankees within two runs. ... Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said C Gary Sanchez, a touted prospect, is likely to be called up from the minors as soon as Wednesday. ... RHP Tyler Clippard, who pitched for the Mets in the World Series last season, made his first appearance for the Yankees since they reacquired him Sunday from Arizona. Clippard struck out two in a scoreless seventh.TRAINERS ROOMMets: Cespedes (thigh) might be able to pinch-hit Tuesday, Collins said. ... Ruggiano exited in the fourth with a mild strain of his left hamstring, the team said. Alejandro De Aza moved from left field to center, and Michael Conforto entered in left. Conforto had an RBI double in the fifth against Sabathia, a rare hit off a left-hander. ... Reynolds started at shortstop after Asdrubal Cabrera sustained a strained patellar tendon in his left knee Sunday against Colorado. Hes going to get some playing time as we wait for Cabby to get better, Collins said. ... RHP Zack Wheeler (Tommy John surgery) threw a simulated game in Florida.UP NEXTYankees RHP Masahiro Tanaka (7-3, 3.16 ERA) starts Tuesday night at Citi Field against Jacob deGrom (6-5, 2.56), who is 0-2 with a 5.25 ERA in two career starts vs. the Bronx Bombers. He lost 1-0 to the Yankees in his major league debut at Citi Field on May 15, 2014. Tanaka is 1-1 with a 1.20 ERA in two starts against the Mets, both at Citi Field. Adidas NMD φθηνα .

It was hard for Luck to pull off another comeback, or even get into the end zone, while standing on the sideline.

He said Tuesday thats a big reason why he is now the new coach of the Tennessee Titans. Whisenhunt said he hit it off quickly with Ruston Webster when interviewing for the job Friday night. SAINT-GERVAIS MONT BLANC -- Chris Froome was relieved to have finished relatively unscathed, albeit sore. He knew too well that his crash on Friday could have cost him a likely third Tour de France title.He is also aware that Saturdays final day in the mountains poses a similar danger, with rain again forecast and with the fight for the podium just as tight as it was 24 hours earlier.Froome has been saying throughout this Tour that winning would be the toughest challenge of his career. That may well prove to be, even though the Briton extended his overall lead again -- but over a reshuffled deck of rivals -- in a crash-marred and rain-stricken 146-kilometer Stage 19 in the Alps on Friday from Albertville to Saint-Gervais Mont Blanc.The stage unfolded as a story of misadventure for so many, including Froome, who crashed with 11.2 km to go on the final descent and nearing the last of four climbs of the day, the 9.8-km ascent to Le Bettex overlooking Saint Gervais Mont Blanc.Its ironic really. I was trying to stay up front and out of trouble, [but] I just hit one of the white lines and lost my wheel, said Froome, who abandoned his first Tour defence in 2014 following several early-stage crashes in slippery conditions.Im OK. Im lucky, nothing is seriously injured. I just lost a little skin and banged my knee a bit. Today was that kind of day, that Im grateful to have a four-minute advantage to fall back on.Froome (Sky) went down heavily on his right shoulder, elbow and knee as he and Italian Vincenzo Nibali (Astana) slipped on the white lane marker in the middle of the road.Fortunately for Froome, he had teammates nearby. They included Welshman Geraint Thomas, who immediately gave Froome his bike when the Tour leader realised his was damaged in the spill. Three other teammates -- Dutchman Wouter Poels and the Spanish duo of Mikel Landa and Sergio Henao -- were able to bring him back to the group of overall contenders.It was great to have all the team around me, said Froome, the 2013 and 2015 champion. Wout in particular ... all the guys. It was a great team effort. It feels good to be one day closer to Paris.It was soon after Froome crashed that Frenchman Romain Bardet (Ag2r) set off in pursuit of stage leader Rui Costa (Lampre-Merida). Bardet eventually overhauled the Portuguese to secure the first stage win by a French rider in this years Tour.Bardet also moved up from fifth place overall to second -- four minutes, 11 seconds behind Froome.?Froome finished the stage on Poels wheel with his yellow jersey torn on the upper right, back at 36 seconds to Bardet, who won the stage by 23 seconds from a group of three riders: Spains Joaquim Rodriguez (Katusha) in third, Alejandro Valverde (Movistar) in fourth, and South African Louis Meintjes (Lampre-Merida) in fifth.Behind them followed a mishmash of exhausted riders, inclluding two other overall contenders who, like Froome, also crashed in the wet, slippery conditions.ddddddddddddThey were Australian Richie Porte (BMC) in 10th at 53 seconds -- now up one place into fifth but at five minutes, 17 seconds off the front -- and Dutchman Bauke Mollema (Trek-Segafredo), who finished 23rd and plummeted from second overall to 10th, a full seven minutes, 42 seconds back.It was a terrible day for the Netherlands. Dutchman Tom Dumoulin also crashed and quit the Tour with a fractured left wrist, placing in serious doubt his availability for the Olympic Games in Rio, where he was a gold-medal favourite for the time trial.While Froome leads Bardet by a lengthy margin, the time gap between second and fifth places overall is 65 seconds, while between third and fifth the margin is 50 seconds.After Froome and Bardet, Colombian Nairo Quintana (Movistar) is now third at 4:27, while Briton Adam Yates (Orica-BikeExchange) is fourth at 4:46 after being handed a 10-second time penalty for receiving an illegal hand sling, and Porte in fifth at 5:17.Stage 20, 146.5 km from Megève to Morzine in the Alps, includes four categorized climbs, the last of which is followed by a tricky and sinewy descent to the finish line.Its going to be hard, really hard, said Froome. Ill be stiff and sore. Hopefully, Im going to rely on my teammates and just have one last push to get through [the] stage.Despite the myriad crashes, Bardet fully deserved the accolades that came his way.I was thinking about the general classification, but when Costa was dropped, I also thought about the stage win, Bardet said. Now I am in second place, and I hope to retain that position tomorrow. One more big mountain stage, so I am satisfied with the situation now.Bardet, who won Stage 18 last year, said his winning moved was not planned. Its the way I like to race, to have fun, with audacity, he said.Last year, the stage win was the goal, this year, I was really working on the GC. Today the rain made it even harder. To win, you have to take risks. I knew this climb, and I knew my bearings, and I knew where I could attack.I was hearing comments that there have been no attacks in this Tour, but we are all very fatigued I also knew I am in the best shape of my life. I just raced today, without any plan.Similarly, Bardet will not forget to enjoy the rest of the Tour that finishes on Sunday with the 21st stage from Chantilly to the Champs élysées in Paris that will suit the sprinters.I want to enjoy this, and take it as it comes, Bardet said. Last year, I tried to defend the climbers jersey, and I could not sleep at night. Now I am more relaxed, and if I manage to finish on the podium in Paris, it will be like a fairytale. ' ' '
