Scott Rolen hit a go-ahead, two-run double to spark a seventh-inning rally and rookie Mike Leake earned his first major league win for the Reds, 8-5 over the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Leake (1-0) was making his third professional start, all in the major leagues this year. He pitched seven innings and became the first Reds starter to win in 2010. And he is the youngest of the starting pitchers.

The Reds came from behind twice for their seventh win.

The Dodgers were leading 5-4 after a Garrett Anderson pinch hit homer when Scott Rolen smacked a two-run double off the left center field fence with two outs in the seventh inning. Drew Stubbs and Ryan Hanigan added run-scoring singles as Cincinnati sent nine batters to the plate against Los Angeles relief pitchers Hong-Chih Kuo (0-1) and Ronald Belisario.

Dodgers left fielder Manny Ramirez left the game in the sixth after straining his right calf while running out a single.

Talbot (2-1) followed up his first major league win, a complete game last weekend against the Chicago White Sox, with six very impressive innings. He hold the Twins to two hits and no earned runs to keep them from sweeping the three-game series.

The Indians are last in the American League in batting average and slugging percentage. They matched a season high with eight runs.

It’s the end April and every year at this time, we have the annual spring football game at Ohio Stadium.

This year the theme will be Scarlet, Gray and Pink. It’ll be this Saturday at Ohio Stadium and presented by Nationwide.

The Ohio state men’s lacrosse team will host Air Force at 11 a.m. in the first part of the doubleheader, with the football scrimmage beginning at 1:30 p.m. The Big Ten Network will televise both contests. Gates will open at 10 a.m.

Tickets are $5 in advance and $10 on Saturday at the stadium.

OSU coaches will wear pink caps and the football team will sport jerseys with pink accents that will be auctioned off to benefit the Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research.

Saturday’s forecast calls for rain throughout the day. Fans are encouraged to dress accordingly because umbrellas cannot be used in Ohio Stadium.

Last year, Buckeye fans set national records when 95,722 were on hand at the Horseshoe for the 2009 football Spring Game and 30,192 watched the lacrosse action.

2010 NFL DRAFT: Browns pick CB Joe Haden of the Florida Gators

Cornerback Joe Haden had very slow times in the 40-yard dash at the NFL scouting combine but the Cleveland Browns liked him so much that they knew he was good enough to be a number 1 pick.

Unable to move up in the first round after inquiring about the number 1 overall pick, Cleveland selected Haden, a two-time All-American at Florida, with the number 7 selection in Thursday’s first round.

Haden is the first player taken by Cleveland’s new management of general manager Tom Heckert and Browns president Mike Holmgren, who was brought in to restore and rebuild one of the NFL’s oldest franchises.

The 5’10 193-pound Haden was so elated when he received the phone call in New York from the Browns, he wept.

Bothered by a bad lower back that he aggravated while lifting weights, Haden was timed in Indianapolis as slow as 4.57 seconds- not exactly NFL cornerback material. But Cleveland liked him anyway. His times improved dramatically at the University of Florida Gators pro day.

2010 NFL DRAFT:Bengals pick TE Jermaine Gresham of Oklahoma

Cincinnati Bengals tight ends coach Jonathan Hayes was very impressed with Jermaine Gresham during the Oklahoma Sooners pro day workout that he told the team’s management that they should use the first round to select the tight end they desperately needed.

The Bengals management listened and filled their biggest hole by taking Gresham with the 21st pick on Thursday, providing their offense with a ingredient that’s been long missing from their passing game. Gresham is an accomplished pass catcher, as well as a  solid blocker.

The 6’6 258-pound Gresham convince Coach Hayes that he was worth being a top pick, something the Bengals have long been hesitant to use on a tight end.  It’s only the second time in franchise history that Cincinnati selected a tight end in the first round. They picked Mike Cobb with the 22nd overall pick in 1977, when they had three first-round picks.

The Cincinnati passing game bogged down last season after starting tight ends Reggie Kelly ruptured an Achilles’ tendon and Ben Utecht suffered a major concussion early in training camp. Both missed the 2009 season and became free agents.

The position was so depleted that the Bengals used offensive linemen in the spot as extra blockers. That made Gresham-the top rated tight end in the draft-a top priority.

Cincinnati managed to win the AFC North title by running the ball and playing defense. Opponents could clamp down on Chad Ochocinco and the other receivers because there was no downfield threat at tight end and or running back.

Gresham caught 66 passes for 950 yards and 14 touchdowns at Oklahoma in 2008. He missed last season after surgery for torn cartilage in his right knee.
