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.

Reds receive former first-rounder

 

   DENVER (AP) - Nolan Arenado, Ben Paulsen and Carlos Gonzalez each homered in a 10-run third inning Sunday to help the Colorado Rockies beat Cincinnati 17-7 on a day when the Reds traded ace Johnny Cueto.
 
   It was a big afternoon for Paulsen, who finished with a career-high four hits that included a triple and two solo homers. Gonzalez also had two homers and drove in a career-best six runs.
 
   Colorado had eight hits in the third, including back-to-back homers by Arenado and Paulsen, to turn a 4-2 deficit into a 12-4 lead. The last time the Rockies scored double-digits in an inning was April 27, 2012, when they had 11 runs against the New York Mets.
 
   Michael Lorenzen (3-5) was roughed up for eight runs in 2 1-3 innings. He allowed two of Colorado's five homers.
 
   Staked to a big lead, Kyle Kendrick (4-11) yielded six runs in five shaky innings for his first win since June 23.
 
   Before the game, Cincinnati finalized a deal that sent Cueto to the Kansas City Royals for three pitching prospects.

   CLEVELAND (AP) - Carlos Rodon pitched shutout ball into the seventh inning and Carlos Sanchez homered for the second straight day, leading the Chicago White Sox to a four-game sweep with a 2-1 win over the Cleveland Indians on Sunday.
 
   Rodon and Sanchez, both rookies, helped the White Sox finish off their first four-game sweep in Cleveland since July 14-17, 2005. Chicago outscored the Indians 26-5 and never trailed in the series.
 
   Rodon (4-3) recorded the longest outing of his career and won for the first time since June 20. The left-hander allowed five hits in 6 2-3 innings, struck out nine and didn't walk a batter.
 
   Sanchez, who hit his first major league home run in Saturday's 10-3 win, led off the third with a homer to center and was 3 for 3.
 
   David Robertson worked out of trouble in the ninth for his 21st save. Giovanny Urshela led off with a triple, but Carlos Santana struck out. Pinch-hitter David Murphy's groundout scored Urshela and Brandon Moss flied out to end the game.
 

 PITTSBURGH (AP) - Gerrit Cole became the majors' first 14-game winner, leading the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 3-1 victory over the Washington Nationals on Sunday.
 
   Cole allowed one run and seven hits in 7 2/3 innings while improving to 3-1 with a 2.40 ERA in four July starts. The right-hander struck out eight and walked none.
 
   Cole (14-4) also became the first Pittsburgh pitcher with 14 wins before August since Dock Ellis in 1971.
 
   Danny Espinosa chased Cole with a single that put two runners on for Bryce Harper, who grounded out against left-hander Tony Watson. Mark Melancon picked up his major league-best 32nd save with a scoreless ninth.
 

 INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Kyle Busch's incredible comeback rolled through Indianapolis Motor Speedway, where Busch won the Brickyard 400 on Sunday to sweep the weekend at the historic track.
 
   Busch missed the first 11 races of the season with a broken right leg and broken left foot. He returned in late May and has won four of the last five Sprint Cup Series races and three straight.
 
   Now he has a prestigious Brickyard victory to give him one of NASCAR's elusive crown jewels. Busch also won the second-tier Xfinity Series race Saturday at Indianapolis.
 
   His Indy victory moved him within 23 points of cracking the top 30 in the standings - where he needs to be to make NASCAR's championship race. It also gave Toyota its first Cup win at Indianapolis.
 

 

Jose Quintana pitches first career shutout.
