Associated Press

The Associated Press is the essential global news network, delivering accurate, insightful news from every corner of the world, 24 hours a day. Since its founding in 1846, AP has been the first to report many of history’s most important moments, and every day, AP journalists, photographers and videographers file news from the front lines of the world's biggest stories. 

AP’s reporting, photography, audio and video are published and broadcast by the world’s leading newspapers, TV channels, apps, radio stations, websites and magazines—in fact, over half the world’s population sees AP news content on any given day. 

As a leader in the field of journalism, AP fights for freedom of the press and the public’s right to know. Its reporters take great risks to file in-depth stories from countries where the press is otherwise restrained, and in the U.S., AP aggressively uses the Freedom of Information Act to advocate for transparency and accountability in government.  

With more experience reporting and delivering news than any other agency, a well-earned reputation for independence and accuracy, and a fierce commitment to the people’s right to know, AP is the definitive source for trusted news.

   TORONTO (AP) - Jerry Sands singled home the go-ahead run in the seventh inning, Danny Salazar struck out 10 and the Cleveland Indians won their sixth straight game, beating the Toronto Blue Jays 4-2 on Monday night.
 
   Salazar (12-7) allowed two runs and six hits in seven innings. He reached double digits in strikeouts for the fifth time this season and the first time since fanning 10 against Baltimore on June 6.
 
   Bryan Shaw got two outs in the eighth and Cody Allen finished for his 28th save.
 
   Ryan Raburn doubled home the tying run as the Indians matched their longest winning streak of the season and halted Toronto's run at four.
 
   Toronto's Edwin Encarnacion, who was named AL player of the week after batting .391 (9 for 23) with six home runs and 17 RBIs, extended his hitting streak to 26 games with a leadoff single in the sixth.

   CHICAGO (AP) - Eugenio Suarez and Adam Duvall hit two-run homers in a four-run sixth inning and the Cincinnati Reds took advantage of two late Chicago errors in a 13-6 victory over the Cubs on Monday night.
 
   Duvall, who was called up from Triple-A earlier Monday, snapped a 5-5 tie with his pinch-hit homer off Cubs reliever Justin Grimm (2-4), who surrendered all four runs in one-third of an inning. Grimm started the inning by walking Ivan DeJesus Jr. and then gave up the home run to Suarez that tied it.
 
   The Reds, who entered Monday having lost five of their last six, used the rally to erase a two-run deficit.
 
   Cincinnati tackled on six unearned runs in the ninth off Chicago relievers Travis Wood and James Russell after second baseman Starlin Castro committed two of his three errors in the inning.

CLEVELAND (AP) - Indians President Mark Shapiro is leaving the club after this season to run Toronto's front office.
 
   Shapiro has had several prominent roles in his 24 season with Cleveland. He will become the Blue Jays' next president and CEO.
 
   Shapiro will replace Toronto CEO Paul Beeston, who is retiring.
 
   Shapiro has been with Cleveland since 1992, when he began as an assistant in baseball operations. He spent four years as the team's minor league director and three as vice president before becoming general manager in 2001. The Indians made the playoffs twice with Shapiro calling the shots before he took over as team president in 2010.
 
   Shapiro says the decision to leave Cleveland is difficult, and owner Paul Dolan says he will not look for a replacement.
 

   BEREA, Ohio (AP) - Browns linebacker Barkevious Mingo returned to practice for the first time since undergoing right knee surgery on Aug. 6.
 
   Mingo has been slowed by injuries throughout his NFL career, but the former first-round draft pick is on schedule and could play in the season opener on Sept. 13 against the Jets.
 
   The Browns had several other injured players return, including cornerbacks Justin Gilbert (hip flexor) and Jordan Poyer (concussion).
 
   Quarterback Johnny Manziel did not throw again as he continues to recover from a sore right elbow. The Browns shut down Manziel last week and believe rest will help his arm recover.
 
   Browns coach Mike Pettine said the team still does not know the extent of rookie running back Duke Johnson's concussion. He was injured in a win Saturday over Tampa Bay.
 
   Pettine said the team has no immediate plans to sign another running back.
