HOUSTON -- Derek Jeter began the first game of his final season by getting plunked with a pitch. Rodrigo Bentancur Jersey . 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." Gonzalo Higuain Jersey . No pretty goals on this night, just get to the front of the net and fight for a chance. Blaise Matuidi Jersey .Y. -- A month ago, Syracuse was unbeaten, ranked No. http://www.juventusfcpro.com/Kids-Gianluigi-Buffon-Jersey/ . No, the San Antonio star didnt announce retirement plans during an off day at the NBA Finals on Wednesday.DENVER - Along with great quarterbacks who all own Super Bowl rings, the four NFL teams hosting playoff games this weekend have a little something else on their side: an extraordinary home-field edge.Seattle has the racket of Century Link, Green Bay the mystique of icy Lambeau. Denvers mile-high altitude and NASCAR offence benefit the Broncos. And the Patriots appreciate the biting winds and bitter cold of foreboding Foxborough, where that hoodie sure comes in handy.The four host teams are a combined 30-2 at home this season; each is at least a touchdown favourite in the divisional round.In the last decade, only two other seasons, 2005 and 2011, featured collective records that good among the four hosts who sat out wild-card weekend, according to STATS.Interestingly, in neither of those postseasons did any of the four win it all. Sixth-seeded Pittsburgh won in 05 and the Giants won as a fourth seed to close out 2011.This years foursome includes the Broncos and Packers with perfect home records, but not the top seed, so the road to the Super Bowl might not even go through Denver or Green Bay.Seattles lone home loss was a 30-23 hiccup against Dallas during the champs early-season stumble. The other defeat was a giveaway: New Englands 19-7 loss to Buffalo in the season finale with the No. 1 seed already secured by the Patriots.Unnerving, is how Richard Sherman describes the sound in Seattle, which can get so loud that the Seahawks defence has to find creative ways to make checks and calls.Panthers tight end Greg Olsen played at Seattle with the Bears a few years ago and left with his ears ringing. He said he expects an even louder stadium Saturday night: Playoff game, coming off a Super Bowl, I can only imagine.Denver quit being such an intimidating place to play after John Elway retired with two rings. Its a big deal again since Mannings arrival in 2012.Our fans have been great ... I think they cause problems for other teams, Manning said, echoing sentiments in Massachusetts, Washington and Wisconsin. Players just feed off that energy when youre playing at home. I think it makes a big difference.Throw in the no-huddle and the lung-searing altitude and you can see why the Broncos are 24-3 at home with Manning, including 17-1 over the last two seasons.Playing up-tempo and then the altitude out here can really give a defence fits, said C.J. Anderson, who knows its working when defensive linemen interlock their knuckles behind their head, heaving between snaps.Indy defensive end Cory Redding argued the altitude effect is all in your head, adding: its a bunch of uh, stuff. But Colts coach Chuck Pagano knows better. He grew up in Boulder, Colorado, and played at Wyoming, which is about 2,000 feet higgher than Denver. Custom Juventus Jerseys. So he knows how the thin air can affect teams. Still, he decided against flying into Colorado a day early.Yeah, we mulled it over, but we figured sticking with the routine and having a normal week was better, he said.One of Denvers three home losses under Manning came in the playoffs two years ago when Joe Flacco heaved a tying 70-yard rainbow to Jacoby Jones in the final minute of regulation. Flaccos seven road playoff wins are the most in NFL history and includes two triumphs at Gillette Stadium, plus a 23-20 loss in which Billy Cundiff missed a short field goal at the end.Flacco doesnt get all the fuss over the home field.Its tough to tell people why youre not intimidated, Flacco said. I think its kind of funny that people would be intimidated at any point in any game against anybody. Its just not in our nature. Weve played in a lot of big football games and this is no (different).So the Ravens will, as usual, swagger into their opponents stadium Saturday.I look around all the time at the crowd when you first come out of the tunnel, Ravens receiver Torrey Smith said. I like the boos. I like to see all of whats going on, see what kind of tradition they have. ... You would love to be home. But playing away, just the challenge of trying to quiet down the crowd is something that you love as a competitor.The Cowboys take an 8-0 road record into Lambeau Field in their first playoff game at Green Bay since losing the Ice Bowl in 1967. Never has an 8-0 road team played an 8-0 host in the post-season.I would say its like a frozen mystique, if you could say that, just because its hard to play in the cold, Packers DB Jarrett Bush said. Its a different discomfort out there on the field, rather than being in Miami or Tampa, somewhere its really hot. The cold is totally different. Totally different ballgame.Of more concern for the Cowboys than the cold is Aaron Rodgers, who has thrown 418 times and 36 consecutive TD passes at home without an interception, both NFL records. He hasnt been picked off at Lambeau Field since Dec. 2, 2012.But the Cowboys might be better off away from AT&T Stadium, anyway. They were 4-4 there and needed a frenetic fourth-quarter rally to beat Detroit last week.On the road, they look like an entirely different team.If we can take that same mentality to Green Bay, safety Barry Church said, despite all the cold, despite all that, if we can just take that mentality, us against the world, then I feel like well have a good chance.___AP Sports Writers Michael Marot, Tim Booth, Genaro C.
