Apr 2, 2013

Chris Iannetta's bases-loaded single in the 13th inning lifted the Los Angeles Angels over host Cincinnati 3-1 yesterday in the season opener for both teams.

It was the Reds' longest opening day game since 1975. The Cleveland Indians open the season later today in Toronto. In NFL news the Cleveland Browns have traded backup quarterback Colt McCoy and a sixth round draft choice to San Francisco for a fifth and seventh round draft pick. The oft-injured McCoy became expendable last week when the Browns signed veteran backup Jason Campbell. The Browns selected McCoy in third round of the 2010 draft. And the Cincinnati Bengals have re-signed veteran cornerback Terence Newman to a two-year, 5 million dollar contract.
