NEW YORK -- After a demoralizing start to the season where nothing seemed to go their way, the New York Mets are making all the right calls. Pinch-hitter Ike Davis hit a walkoff grand slam one batter after manager Terry Collins won his first replay challenge, and the Mets rallied to beat the Cincinnati Reds 6-3 Saturday. "That was tremendous ending especially for Ike going thru what hes going through," Collins said. "To come in in a big situation and come through, thats great stuff." Brandon Phillips gave the Reds a 3-2 lead with a two-run homer off Dillon Gee in the eighth, two innings after Curtis Granderson connected for a two-run drive off Johnny Cueto, his first homer with the Mets. Trailing by a run in the ninth, Juan Lagares walked leading off against fill-in closer J.J. Hoover. Anthony Recker got a bunt down on a ball that was above his eyes, and first baseman Joey Votto threw to shortstop Zack Cozart covering second. Second base umpire James Hoye called Lagares out. Running down the first base line, Recker knew the Mets had an opportunity. "As soon as he called him out I was thinking to myself how we should challenge it," Recker said. So was Collins. After a review of 2 minutes, 14 seconds, the call was overturned by crew chief John Hirschbeck. "Youve got to go out," Collins said. "Took a chance. But youve got to. Its just a close play anyway. Weve got that opportunity to challenge that, so I had to take a shot at it." Reds first-year manager Bryan Price agreed with the call. "They got it right and as frustrating as it was, we anticipated we were going to get the switch," Price said. Hoover (1-1), pitching the ninth for Aroldis Chapman who is out after being hit in the face by a line drive during spring training, then walked Ruben Tejada to load the bases. "That leadoff walk, didnt give myself any chance really," Hoover said. Davis lost his starting first base job to Lucas Duda a day earlier, but was called on to hit in the pitchers spot and lined a 0-1 curveball off the facing of the right field porch, setting off a gleeful celebration at Citi Field that included a whipped cream pie in Davis face. Collins said Davis will start Sunday against Alfredo Simon, a decision made before the game. "As long as Duda keeps hitting thats going to be my role," Davis said. Duda hit two homers Friday night in the Mets 4-3 win over the Reds. The Mets won their second straight after being swept by Washington in three games to open the season. Cincinnati dropped to 1-4 for the first time since 2003, when it finished 69-93. The Mets beleaguered bullpen came through, too. Scott Rice got two outs and Carlos Torres (1-0) worked a scoreless ninth to give the Mets a chance. In a blustery wind with gusts up to 35 mph that sent papers swirling around Citi Field, Cueto and Gee were dominant early against two of the leagues worst hitting teams thus far. Cueto didnt allow a hit until Tejada doubled with one out in the fifth inning and Gee was perfect until Tucker Barnhart, subbing for injured catcher Devin Mesoraco (oblique strain), lined his first big league hit to right field with one out in the third. Cueto gave up five hits and two runs, lifting any lingering worry about his health after he made only 11 starts last season. He struck out nine and walked three -- one intentionally. Gee allowed six hits and a walk. He struck out four. NOTES: Reds CF Billy Hamilton was scratched from the lineup because of a jammed left middle finger. He was injured sliding head-first into second base Friday night when he was caught stealing. He played centre field in the ninth. ... The only other walkoff, pinch-hit grand slam for the Mets came in 1986, when Tim Teufel beat the Phillies. ... Phillips has a hit in all 28 games hes played against the Mets in New York. ... Mets LHP Jonathon Niese is scheduled to make his first start of the season Sunday in the series finale. Dalvin Tomlinson Giants Jersey .com) - The Utah Jazz look to put an end to their five-game losing streak when the Denver Nuggets visit Salt Lake City Monday night. Darius Slayton Youth Jersey .

Switzerland faces Belgium or Kazakhstan in the quarterfinals in April. Serbia dropped into the World Group playoffs in September. A confident Chiudinelli and Lammer defeated veteran doubles player Zimonjic and young Krajinovic 7-6 (3), 3-6, 7-6 (2), 6-2. Saquon Barkley Jersey Phil McConkey Giants Jersey .TV Series: Duck Dynasty.Sacramento, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Russell Westbrook scored 32 points with seven assists to help the Oklahoma City Thunder to their seventh straight win, a 104-92 decision over the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday. Kevin Durant supplied 26 points and Anthony Morrow drained three 3-pointers en route to 10 points off the bench for the Thunder. The loss spoiled the Sacramento coaching debut of Tyrone Corbin, who was named interim coach of the Kings following Michael Malones dismissal late Sunday night. Malone was fired after guiding the Kings to an 11-13 record in just his second season at the helm. Rudy Gay paced Sacramento, which has lost four straight, with 22 points to go along with six rebounds. Carl Landry netted 14 points in a reserve role. Landry and Ryan Hollins each scored four points as part of a 13-2 run to open the fourth quarter. Landry capped the spurt with a jumper that gave the Kings their first lead of the game, 84-83, with 8:05 to play. That lead was short lived, however. Reggie Jackson converted a three-point play that jump-started a 9-0 burst that gave Oklahoma City a 94-86 edge. Durants jumper in the closing minutes preceded Westbrooks layup that put the visitors up 12 and closed out their 12th consecutive victory over Sacramento. Durant, who needed just three points for 15,000 in his career, knocked down a jumper to cap a 9-0 run to open the game for the Thunder. He became the second youngest to reach the 15,000-point plateau with tthe basket.ddddddddddddLeBron James, the youngest to reach that mark, did so at 25 years, 79 days old. Oklahoma City led by as many as 16 late in the opening frame, then Landrys basket brought the Kings within 34-20 after 12 minutes. A 9-1 run by Sacramento midway through the second cut the deficit to four, but Durants 3-pointer minutes later pushed the margin back to double digits. Serge Ibaka netted a pair of free throws for a 59-45 lead with 1:34 remaining. The Kings then ended the half on a 9-1 run that Gay capped with a driving dunk over the out-stretched arms of Ibaka, was fouled and hit the subsequent free throw to make it a 61-54 game at the break. Sacramento trimmed the deficit to four on a couple of occasions early in the third, but the Thunder went on a 10-2 run and they led 81-71 after three quarters. Game Notes It took Durant 26 years, 78 days to reach 15,000 -- a span of 550 games ... Sacramento retired Peja Stojakovics No. 16 at halftime. Stojakovic spent his first seven-plus seasons in the league with the Kings ... Corbin went 112-146 in three-plus seasons as coach of the Utah Jazz ... Kings center DeMarcus Cousins missed his 10th straight game due to viral meningitis. Sacramento is 2-8 without him over that span ... Steven Adams had a game-high 10 rebounds in the win ... Oklahoma City scored 26 points off 19 turnovers ... The Thunder had a 21-8 advantage on the fastbreak. ' ' '
