NEW YORK (AP) - Jacob deGrom struck out 12 and the New York Mets backed him in a big way, hitting five home runs while battering Luis Severino and the New York Yankees 8-5. Amed Rosario led off this Subway Series matchup with a drive into the right-field seats and Jose Bautista, Todd Frazier, Brandon Nimmo and Michael Conforto later connected. DeGrom pitched into the seventh inning and leads the majors with a 1.81 ERA.

NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Yankees have put pitcher CC Sabathia on the 10-day disabled list because of right knee inflammation. Sabathia went on the DL a day after pitching six shutout innings of one-hit ball to beat Texas. The 38-year-old lefty is 7-4 with a 3.32 ERA in 22 starts. Sabathia has been bothered by knee trouble for several seasons. Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Sabathia said it would help him to skip a start.

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Tempers have flared between the Jets and Redskins during joint training camp workouts leading up to their preseason game. Instead of being the focal point of the fighting, Redskins-turned-Jets receiver Terrelle Pryor says he's still working to be 100 percent after breaking his ankle in May. The majority of players and coaches were annoyed that fights overshadowed the benefits the joint workouts.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - The New York Giants received a minor scare when rookie running back Saquon Barkley came up lame at the end of a play during practice. The No. 2 overall draft pick caught a swing pass out of the backfield from fellow rookie Kyle Lauletta and was injured either stretching to make the catch or running down the sideline after the catch. Coach Pat Shurmur says the former Penn State running back suffered a mild strain.

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - The New Jersey Devils have signed forward Kevin Rooney to a two-year contract. General Manager Ray Shero says the first year will be a two-way deal in which Rooney will earn $700,000 at the NHL level and $100,000 at the AHL level, with $70,000 guaranteed. The second year is worth $700,000 at the NHL level. Rooney played in 71 games for the Binghamton Devils of the AHL last season.

EAGAN, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota Vikings have placed guard Nick Easton on injured reserve with a neck injury that required surgery and has likely ended his season. The Vikings filled Easton's roster spot by signing guard Kaleb Johnson. Easton started 12 games at left guard last year. He had a procedure done last week to repair a bulging disk in his neck. The 6-foot-4, 300-pound Johnson has joined his sixth NFL team. Undrafted out of Rutgers in 2015, Johnson has not appeared in a regular-season game.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Minnesota Lynx star Lindsay Whalen will retire from the WNBA at the end of the season. She has been balancing a new job as coach of the Minnesota Gophers, her alma mater, with playing point guard for the Lynx. Her retirement will end a 15-year career that includes four WNBA championships with the Lynx. The 36-year-old Whalen is a two-time Olympic gold medalist who led the Gophers to their only Final Four in 2004.
