PORTLAND, Ore. -- The Portland Timbers season-opening draw with Philadelphia left them wondering what they could have done to pull out the win. "I think every single guy, if they look at that game, theyll say Yes, I could have done more. We have to fix that," captain Will Johnson said. Newcomer Gaston Fernandez scored on a header in stoppage time to give the Timbers the 1-all draw against the re-tooled Union on Saturday night. The goal in the 93rd minute got past goalkeeper Zac MacMath in driving rain, and the Timbers stole three points from the Union, who got a goal in the 64th minute from Jack McInerney. The Timbers went 14-15-5 last season to finish atop the Western Conference. Portland advanced to the conference finals in the playoffs, losing to Real Salt Lake. First-year coach Caleb Porter was named MLS Coach of the Year for guiding his team to a 23-game turnaround from the previous season. "The coach in me is always looking down the road and how we can get better," Porter said after the opener. "But I am happy we pulled out the point." Portlands 15 draws last season were the most in the league since 2011. The Union went 12-12-10 last season, finishing seventh in the Eastern Conference and missing the playoffs for the second straight year. But Philadelphia looked like a new team in the opener, pressuring the Timbers from the start. After a scoreless first half, McInerney, with help from newcomer Maurice Edu, headed the ball past Ricketts off a corner from Cristian Maidana in the 64th minute. It was the 25th goal of McInerneys career. He had 12 goals last season for the Union. "To give one up in injury time is a tough way to lose a couple of points, but Portlands a really good team, so youve got to think theres a lot to build on from that game," Union coach John Hackworth said. Philadelphias off-season moves were headlined by the addition of Edu, acquired from English Premier League side Stoke City in late January. The Union also added Maidana and traded for Austin Berry. Unlike the Union, the nucleus of the Timber remained largely intact, including Goalkeeper of the Year Donavan Ricketts, top scorer and Newcomer of the Year Diego Valeri and All-Star Will Johnson, the teams captain. Portland added Fernandez and defender Norberto Paparatto, both of Argentina. Porter called Fernandezs goal in the opener important for his acclimation to the team. "Its big. I think part of scoring goals is confidence," Porter said. "Hopefully it gets him rolling." Ricketts had to dive to fend off Maidanas shot in the 20th minute as the rain swirled in the gusty wind. Portland appeared tentative until late in the first half, but a rally fell short when Valeris hard shot from out in front of the box sailed just wide. The Timbers looked to have a chance to even it in the 71st minute, but Valeri was called for a hand ball and the whistle blew before his shot hit the back of the net. Philadelphia played without midfielder Conor Casey, who also missed the preseason with a calf strain. Portland pulled defender Pa-Modou Kah in the 34th minute when he went down behind the play. Kah was replaced by Futty Danso. The Timbers inducted Mick Hoban, the teams first contracted player before their inaugural 1975 NASL season, into the teams Ring of Honor. Following his retirement from the game in 1978, Hoban was hired by Blue Ribbon Sports -- which later became Nike -- to help develop the shoemakers soccer business. He has remained one of Portlands most dedicated soccer ambassadors. Anthony Davis Team USA Jersey .C. -- Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe is resigning after 13 seasons at the school.

NEW YORK -- Brandon McCarthy. Chris Capuano. Shane Greene. And now, Esmil Rogers. The New York Yankees have gone on an improbable run to get right back in the thick of the playoff race and an unlikely bunch of pitchers have led the way. Rogers, perhaps the unlikeliest of all, worked five sharp innings Friday night and Carlos Beltran hit a grand slam and drove in five runs as the Yankees beat the sloppy Cleveland Indians 10-6 for their sixth win in seven games. "Theyve pitched extremely well," manager Joe Girardi said. "Im not sure any of us knew exactly what to expect, but since the All-Star break weve had a chance to win every game and thats because of them." The Yankees walked seven times in moving seven games above .500 (61-54) for the first time this season. They are 14-7 since the break. Derek Jeter tied Honus Wagner for sixth place on the career list with his 3,430th hit in a five-run first inning against Trevor Bauer (4-7). Beltrans 11th career slam highlighted a five-run sixth. The Indians, who have the majors worst fielding percentage, prolonged both innings with errors in their fourth straight loss overall and seventh in a row in the Bronx. "I think we all understand the type of team we need to be to win, and not mmaking teams earn every single thing they get does not put us in the best position to win," Indians manager Terry Francona said.dddddddddddd Picked up off waivers on July 31 after the Toronto Blue Jays cut him for the second time this season, Rogers (2-0) became the 12th player to make a start for New York. Pitching in place of David Phelps (elbow inflammation), he allowed one run and four hits over five innings in his first start since Sept. 25 for Toronto and threw 88 pitches -- 45 was his high this season coming in. "I didnt have my confidence like I have right now," Rogers said about the difference between the way he is pitching now compared to earlier in the season. Rogers outing followed four fine starts by a makeshift rotation against the Detroit Tigers heralded staff. Three of those came from pitchers who made their first start for the Yankees in July: McCarthy, Capuano and Greene. The Yankees took advantage of three walks by Bauer in the first inning. Beltran, Stephen Drew and Martin Prado had RBI singles and another run scored on second baseman Jason Kipnis throwing error. Bauer was charged with five runs and six hits in 3 1-3 innings. John Axford walked the bases loaded -- one intentional -- before Beltran connected. Wholesale NFL Jerseys ' ' '
