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.

  CINCINNATI (AP) - Scott Van Slyke, A.J. Ellis and Yasiel Puig all homered during a five-run fourth inning, and the Los Angeles Dodgers held on for a 7-4 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday night.
 
   Kike Hernandez added three hits and Adrian Gonzalez chipped in a ninth-inning RBI double for the NL West-leading Dodgers, have won two straight games after a season-high, five-game losing streak.
 
   The Reds, who have lost 11 of their last 12 games and slipped to 1-8 on their 10-game homestand, reached left-hander Brett Anderson for three unearned runs. Anderson (8-8) gave up five hits with one walk, four strikeouts and a wild pitch.
 
   Luis Avilan struck out Jay Bruce with the tying runs on base in the eighth and Kenley Jansen pitched the ninth for his 25th save.

   BEREA, Ohio (AP) - Johnny Manziel's sore right elbow has not responded to rest and the Browns quarterback will likely sit out an exhibition Saturday at Tampa Bay.
 
   Manziel was kept from throwing again Wednesday, the second time this week he's been held out of throwing drills. Browns coach Mike Pettine said Manziel underwent an MRI, which did not reveal any structural damage and the team is deciding the next step in treatment.
 
   Pettine said the team will be cautious with the second-year QB. Pettine said Manziel has been bothered by elbow soreness since high school.
 
   It's possible the Browns will sign another quarterback.
 
   Manziel has had a strong preseason, and Pettine said the elbow injury is only a "minor setback" for the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner.

   CLEVELAND (AP) - Cleveland State has partnered with Quicken Loans Arena and will have its basketball teams play some home games on the Cavaliers' court next season.
 
   The university's men's team will play five games next season at the Q against schools with large alumni bases in the area. Those dates are to be announced, but Cleveland State's goal in aligning with the arena is to heighten the program's profile and bring more fans to games at Wolstein Center on campus.
 
   As part of the multiyear agreement, Quicken Loans will handle the booking of concerts and events at Wolstein Center.
 
   The Vikings averaged just over 2,200 fans last season at Wolstein, which has a capacity of 13,600.
