HOUSTON -- Derek Jeter began the first game of his final season by getting plunked with a pitch. The Astros then beat up on CC Sabathia even worse, ensuring the captains farewell tour would start with a Yankees loss. Jesus Guzman and L.J. Hoes homered off Sabathia to help the Houston Astros roll to a 6-2 win against New York on Tuesday night. "Trying to get your first win, your first hit, your first run, anything is kind of difficult to do," Jeter said. "The first, sometimes, is tough to come by." Jeter was hit on the left arm by Scott Feldman in his first at-bat and ended 1 for 3 with a single. The 13-time All-Star who helped New York to five World Series titles announced in February we would retire after his 20th season. "I was a little extra anxious because I hadnt played in a while, but when I got hit, I think that actually helped," said Jeter, who missed most of last season with injuries. The Astros added Dexter Fowler and Feldman to improve a team coming off three straight 100-loss seasons. On the first day, it worked. Fowler had two doubles as Houston jumped on Sabathia for six runs in the first two innings. Feldman allowed two hits in 6 2-3 innings in his Houston debut after signing a three-year, $30 million contract "This entire spring leading up to opening day we built that vibe up where these guys are confident, theyre playing with a lot of energy, focus," manager Bo Porter said. "The attention to detail is outstanding. Everybody wants to get out to a good start." Sabathia led the majors last season with 122 runs allowed and finished with a career-worst 4.78 ERA. Things went bad for him from the start on Monday night in a matchup of the leagues youngest vs. oldest rosters. "It got out of hand early," Sabathia said. "Ive got 34 -- hopefully more -- starts left. Im definitely not going to pitch like I did tonight in the first two innings. I know I can pitch. I love to get guys out. I feel great, so no Im not going to beat myself up over this." Yankees manager Joe Girardi tried not to make too much of the loss. "Well, its not what you want, but I had a feeling we were going to lose a game at some point this year," he said. "So, we got it out of the way early." Fowler, traded from Colorado this off-season, hit a leadoff double and scored on a one-out single by Jose Altuve that rolled just out of reach of a diving Jeter and into the outfield. Altuve made it 2-0 when he scored on a fielders choice by Jason Castro later in the inning. Things got worse for Sabathia when Guzman launched the first pitch he saw with the Astros into left-centre field for a two-run homer to push the lead to 4-0. Hoes -- making his opening day debut -- opened the second inning with a home run to left field. Altuve made it 6-0 with an RBI single. Sabathia allowed eight hits and six runs in six innings. The Yankees couldnt do much offensively until the eighth inning when Brian McCann and Mark Teixeira hit consecutive RBI singles off Chad Qualls to make it 6-2. Qualls got out of the inning when Alfonso Soriano grounded into a double play For the first time since 1947 and just the second time in team history, every position except pitcher had a different player on opening day than it did in New Yorks previous opener. The Yankees began 2013 with a loss to Boston and among those who have either moved on or to the bench are star second baseman Robinson Cano (who signed with Seattle) and aging outfielder Ichiro Suzuki (now a reserve for New York). Brett Gardner was the only player in both lineups, though he moved from centre to left to make room Jacoby Ellsbury, one of several newly acquired star for the Yankees. Feldman sailed through the first three innings against the new Bronx Bombers and New Yorks first hit didnt come until Carlos Beltran singled with one out in the fourth. He didnt allow another baserunner until Teixeira singled with one out in the seventh. NOTES: Former President George H.W. Bush and wife Barbara watched the game from front row seats behind the dugout. ... Hall of Fame pitcher Nolan Ryan, who returned to the Astros as an executive advisor in February, threw out the ceremonial first pitch to Craig Biggio. The pitch was terrible, flying far out of Biggios reach. "I tell you, my catcher didnt try," Ryan joked. "That ball wasnt that far outside and he just didnt get over." Jordan Zimmermann Jersey .

Cameron Maybin Jersey .com) - One point guard will return, while another will sit when the Minnesota Timberwolves visit American Airlines Center to take on the Dallas Mavericks. CHICAGO -- This was a no-brainer from start to finish. Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane wanted to stay in Chicago and the Blackhawks wanted to keep the high-scoring forwards in the only NHL uniform they have ever known. All that was left was crunching the numbers on two of the biggest contracts in franchise history. The Blackhawks announced Wednesday they had reached eight-year extensions with two of their top performers in a long run of success that includes Stanley Cup titles in 2010 and 2013. Toews and Kane led Chicago back to the Western Conference final this year, where it lost to the eventual NHL champion Los Angeles Kings. General manager Stan Bowman said all along that the extensions were his biggest off-season priority, and it didnt take very long to reach the agreements with Pat Brisson, who represents both players. Toews and Kane each have one year left on their five-year extensions from December 2009, and July 1 was the first day they could sign new deals. Each contract is worth $84 million for an average annual value of $10.5 million, according to a person familiar with the situation who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team did not announce the contract numbers. Toews and Kane made it clear right after the Game 7 loss to Los Angeles that they wanted to stay with the Blackhawks, who added .8MoreYears to their tweets about the deal. "Theres no organization in sports that cares more about the overall experience of their fans and the success of their players," Toews said in a statement released by the team. "Theres nothing we want more as players than to continue to win Stanley Cups for the best hockey fans on the planet." Toews, the No. 3 selection in the 2006 draft, was just 20 when he became the 34th captain in team history in Jully 2008.dddddddddddd He is regarded as one of the NHLs best two-way players, winning the 2013 Selke Trophy as the leagues best defensive forward. Kane, the top overall pick in the 2007 draft, has developed into one of the NHLs most clutch players after questions about his maturity dogged the dynamic winger for the first part of the career. He had the series-clinching goal in Game 6 of the 2010 Stanley Cup finals at Philadelphia, and won the Conn Smythe Trophy last year as playoff MVP. The 25-year-old Kane put on another impressive display in this years post-season, almost bringing Chicago back from a 3-1 deficit against Los Angeles. He had two goals and eight assists in the final four games of the series against the Kings. The $168 million worth of extensions for Toews and Kane mean the Blackhawks have much of their core group locked up through the 2016-17 season. Bowman could face some sticky situations with the salary cap in the coming years, but his team should be a Stanley Cup contender for a while. "The signings of Jonathan and Patrick symbolize an important milestone in franchise history," Blackhawks President and CEO John McDonough said. "We are driven by the pursuit of consistent excellence and today is a huge step forward." The 26-year-old Toews has at least 23 goals and 25 assists in each of his seven NHL seasons. He set career highs with 32 goals and 44 assists in the 2010-11 season. Kane averages 25 goals and 45 assists per year. He had a career-high 30 goals and 58 assists for the 2009-10 campaign. More important for Chicago, each player has been at his best in the post-season. Kane is fifth on the franchises career list with 37 playoff goals and his 54 assists ranks sixth in team history. Toews (29 goals, 52 assists) also is in the top 10 in each category.
