Cincinnati Reds pitcher Sam LeCure continues to battle with the rest of his team amid a hopeful journey to the 2012 World Series, but we have reports the right-hander is already winning. 

Busted Coverage reports the 28-year old reliever is the proud boyfriend of the latest CBS reporter to be steaming up the sidelines, Lauren Gardner. 

We still take the report with some grain, because there is no mention of how the relationship started or any verification from LeCure or Gardner. 

Although, there are some rather interesting tweets from this lovely lady. 

There was this show of support to LeCure specifically.

Congrats to @mrlecure & the Reds on clinching the NL Central! Big year for this team #Clinchmas

While we may not know how these two became an item, we do know how they are faring in their separate but equally prolific careers. 

LeCure pitched 57 innings out of the bullpen for a contending Reds team this season, notching a 3.14 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP while garnering seven holds. 

As for Gardner, she is well on her way as a sports media personality. 

The former Denver Broncos cheerleader was featured in Busted Coverage's 'Next Erin Andrews' series in 2011, soon after getting a job as a sideline reporter for the Lingerie Football League. 

She now has a bigger stage as the College Football sideline reporter for CBS Sports, and you can learn a lot more about this budding star at her official website

As you can see, LeCure is already a winner, well before the final game of the season.
