NEW YORK — Nothing went right for the Cincinnati Reds in the ninth inning.
Fill-in closer J.J. Hoover couldn’t find the plate. First baseman Joey Votto made a risky choice on a bunt. Even a replay challenge went against them.
It all added up to another loss that has the Reds off to their worst start in more than a decade.
Pinch-hitter Ike Davis hit a game-ending grand slam and the New York Mets were aided by a favorable ninth-inning video review in rallying to beat the Reds 6-3 Saturday.
“Things just didn’t work, nothing worked,” first-year manager Bryan Price said. “We just weren’t able to close it out.”

ARLINGTON, Texas — Connecticut’s 2011 national championship has been characterized as a one-man effort by Kemba Walker. Good as he was, he still needed help from teammates Jeremy Lamb, Alex Oriakhi and Shabazz Napier.
Now that it’s Napier’s turn, the same gotta-have-help method has applied — this time with DeAndre Daniels and Ryan Boatright taking turns at the wheel.
Daniels carried UConn out of an early funk, Boatright bulled around Florida’s guard at both ends and the Huskies are headed back to the national championship game after a 63-53 victory over the Gators in the Final Four Saturday night.
Daniels had 20 points on 9-of-14 shooting and 10 rebounds, and Boatright finished with 13 points to help finish off Florida’s 30-game winning streak and send the seventh-seeded Huskies into Monday’s title game against Kentucky.
“We’ve been saying all year that we’ve got a complete team,” Boatright said. “It’s not a one-man team. It’s not a two-man team. We’ve got a complete team.”

DETROIT (AP) — The Detroit Red Wings experienced a lull after a fast start but got the two points they needed.
Daniel Alfredsson had a goal and an assist and Detroit held off the Buffalo Sabres 3-2 on Friday night for the Red Wings’ fourth consecutive win.
Detroit led 3-0 after the first period.
“To me, I thought we started really good, we were all over them,” said Red Wings’ coach Mike Babcock, who got his 413th win for Detroit, which ties him for the all-time franchise record with Jack Adams.
“I thought suddenly we had some skill and suddenly we were dangling around with the puck and now we had the cute-itis going and then we didn’t want to shoot it in the net,” he said. “We wanted to pass it one more time and the next thing you know it’s game on instead of just doing things simple and hard and right.”

CLEVELAND (AP) — Only hours before this season’s home opener, the Indians guaranteed Jason Kipnis will be around for more than a few more.
The All-Star second baseman agreed to a $52.5 million, six-year contract on Friday, binding him to the Indians through the 2019 season. The deal includes a club option for 2020.
Kipnis signed the contract one day after turning 27, giving him a birthday gift of wealth and security he’ll never forget.
“It’s an amazing feeling to get something done,” said Kipnis. “I wanted to stay here. I’m excited about being here.”
Kipnis is the latest core player to be signed to a long-term deal by the Indians, who reached agreements with outfielder Michael Brantley (4 years, $25 million) and catcher Yan Gomes (6 years, $23 million) in the past two months.
“It’s the ownership, the top, showing us that they believe in us, that we’ve got the guys who can win games now and we want them stick around,” Kipnis said. “I’m excited about be a part of that.”

COLUMBUS (AP) — Ben Smith had the closest look and he likened it to mayhem.
Antti Raanta had the worst view on the ice and to him it was a thing of beauty.
Smith tapped in a rebound with 3.7 seconds left on a wild scrum to give the Chicago Blackhawks a 4-3 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Friday night.
