ROME -- After becoming the most expensive transfer in Italian football history, Gonzalo Higuain quickly showed his value by coming off the bench to score the winner in Juventus 2-1 victory over Fiorentina on the opening day of Serie A.Higuain, who came up from Napoli in a 90-million euro ($99-million) deal, scored from a tight angle after a shot from Sami Khedira was deflected -- eight minutes and 26 seconds after he came on and with just his third touch.Earlier Saturday, substitute Diego Perotti converted two penalties before setting up another goal as likely title-challenger Roma produced a second-half outburst to beat visiting Udinese 4-0 in the Italian league opener.In Turin, Khedira had put Juventus ahead with a header from the center of the area midway through the first half, meeting a cross from Giorgio Chiellini.Fiorentina was unable to produce a single shot in the first half but Nikola Kalinic equalized in the 70th with a header following a corner.Five minutes later, Higuain was celebrating and the Juventus Stadium was rocking in welcoming its new star.Fans had started cheering the moment Higuain got off the bench to warm up.They made me feel their affection from the first moment, Higuain said. Hopefully I can repay this affection with goals and victories.Higuain scored 36 times for Napoli last season to break a 66-year-old Serie A record for goals scored in a single season.Higuain raised some doubts when he showed up overweight at his opening training session with Juventus, which was likely why he didnt start.Im always confident, I just had to work, he said.Former Barcelona winger Dani Alves also impressed in his Juventus debut.Having also signed crafty playmaker Miralem Pjanic from Roma, expert defender Medhi Benatia from Bayern Munich and prized winger Marco Pjaca from Dinamo Zagreb, Juventus has assembled a squad that is expected to contend for the Champions League title.Few observers expect Juventus to be challenged in Serie A, where it is attempting to win a record sixth consecutive title.We want to win all the titles possible this year, Higuain said. But theres a long way to go. Were only at the start.Since Serie A was founded in 1929, no club has won more than five straight tittles.Torino won five consecutive titles from 1943-49 (including a season that was canceled due to World War II), Inter Milan took five straight from 2006-10 and Juventus claimed a handful from 1931-35 before its current streak.It was also a perfect start for Roma as the Giallorossi prepare for the return leg of the Champions League playoffs on Tuesday against Porto, following a 1-1 opening leg.It was really important to win and start well so we can approach the Porto match serenely, Perotti said.Perottis first spot kick came in the 65th after Edin Dzeko used a sharp change of direction to make defender Danilo fall on top of him.Perotti played a part in drawing the second penalty, sending a through ball to Mohammed Salah, who sped past the defense, prompting Emmanuel Badu to tug him over.Dzeko made it 3-0 from close range with his ninth Serie A goal in the 82nd and Salah finished things off two minutes later after taking a long pass from Perotti.Roma has finished in the top three positions of the Italian league each of the last three seasons and is looking to take home a trophy this campaign.Since joining Roma midway through last season, Perotti has scored five goals and provided seven assists in 16 Serie A appearances. More is expected of the Argentine this season after Pjanics departure.Rested at the start with the Porto match in mind, Perotti replaced Stephan El Shaarawy early in the second half.I feel great with Roma. I feel the confidence of my teammates and the entire club, Perotti said. Im always thinking about helping the squad, even off of the bench.Captain Francesco Totti, beginning his 25th season with Roma, never left the bench -- and fellow Giallorossi stalwart Daniele De Rossi also did not play.Salah and Dzeko produced several early chances before a sparse crowd at the Stadio Olimpico.Dzeko had a tough time settling in at Roma last season after a prolific spell at Manchester City but he made a big impact in this match, touching the ball 10 times in the oppositions box, more than any other player.---Andrew Dampf on Twitter: www.twitter.com/asdampf Corey Robinson Jersey .

DaNorris Searcy Jersey . But by the time the game started, the Toronto Raptors forward felt even worse. And, for three quarters, it showed as Gay shot a woeful three-for-13 from the field. CLEVELAND -- What happens when the cork pops on a 108-year-old bottle of champagne?Well, as soon as the throw from Kris Bryant settled into Anthony Rizzos glove in the bottom of the 10th inning of the damnedest game in the damnedest World Series ... maybe ever, the Chicago Cubs sprang from the visitors dugout to celebrate their 8-7 victory and first World Series title since -- let it breathe -- 1908.Yes, there were ghosts out there, and millions of long-suffering Cubs fans, but this celebration was about this mostly young team that survived expectations and defied the odds by winning the last three games of the Series. One player stood apart from his teammates, looking at them for a moment and smiling proudly.That was David Ross, known as Grandpa Rossy, the backup catcher who had long ago announced that this would be his last season. He came into the game in the fifth to catch his battery- and soulmate, Jon Lester, and he had a big hand in this game.OK, yes -- first he made a throwing error, and then he fell on his butt chasing a wild pitch while the Indians scored two runs to close the lead to 5-3. But then, in the top of the sixth, he hit a home run off the virtually unhittable Andrew Miller to put the Cubs back on top, 6-3. As he later described, in his return to the dugout, assistant batting coach Eric Hinske told him, Dude, you just homered in Game 7 off Andrew Miller!At 37 years, 228 days, he also became the oldest player to hit a home run in Game 7 of a World Series, surpassing Willie Stargell of the 1979 Pirates by only three days. (Those We Are Fam-a-lee Pirates also happen to be the last team to come back from a 3-1 deficit by winning the last two games on the road.)In the end, like Ross performance Wednesday, and the Cubs over the course of the season, this game had a lot of ups and downs. (In a charming TV miked-up moment during the game, Ross told a nervous Rizzo, Just continue to breathe. Thats all you can do, buddy. Its only gonna get worse.) But by the time it ended, all that was immportant was the ending: A ground out to Bryant.dddddddddddd At which time, all heaven broke loose as an inordinate number of Cubs fans cheered and Cleveland fans turned away.As the Cubs celebrated on the field, Ken Rosenthal from Fox Sports interviewed Ross, who spoke eloquently about how proud he was of his teammates and was interrupted by manager Joe Maddon in a tight embrace. What a group of winners, Ross told Rosenthal. These guys never quit. Theyve answered every challenge all year long. ... Its a good organization, Im so happy for these guys and Im just glad they took me on this journey.?The interview ended when Rizzo and Jason Heyward came over to take Ross on a literal journey, hoisting him on their shoulders and carrying him off.What a last ride this has been for Ross, who started his major league career with the Dodgers in 2002 and won a World Series with the Red Sox in 2013. He caught Jake Arrietas no-hitter earlier this season and won 100 regular-season games for the first time. And he has earned the love and respect of every player and coach in the room.But he was nowhere to be found as the corks popped and the champagne flowed in the visitors clubhouse. Employees posed and took selfies with the World Series trophy. Maddon brought a silver plate of crab legs into his office. Bill Murray held court, of course, but he was subdued and pensive as he wiped the bubbly from his eyes. The dream has come true, he said. Its wonderful but a little overwhelming. Weve been good losers. I just hope we can be good winners.Ross chose to spend time with his family in the weight room below the clubhouse, but eventually the media found him. Asked if he was rethinking his decision to retire, he said, Oh, God, no. How can I top this? If I come back, itll be to get my ring and maybe yell at Rizzo from the seats.This has been a storybook season for me. And I got my happy ending.
