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.

Brewers Snap Skid, Beat Reds

   MILWAUKEE (AP) - Kyle Lohse bounced back from a poor start this season and the Milwaukee Brewers snapped an eight-game losing streak, beating the Cincinnati Reds 4-2 Thursday.

   Jean Segura drove in the go-ahead run with a two-out single in the seventh. The hit off Kevin Gregg (0-2) went to center field, and Billy Hamilton's throw home was up the third base line, allowing Logan Schafer to score.
   Lohse (1-3) pitched seven neat innings after losing his first three starts with a 10.34 ERA.

MLB Commish Mulling Rose Role at ASG

   NEW YORK (AP) - Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred says Pete Rose will play some role during this summer's All-Star Game in Cincinnati.
   Speaking Thursday with the Associated Press Sports Editors, Manfred said he has not determined a timetable to decide on Rose's application to end his lifetime ban from baseball. The ban started in 1989 following an investigation Rose bet on the Reds to win while he was managing the team.
   Manfred plans to speak with Cincinnati Reds owner Bob Castellini on what role the club would like to have for Rose at the July 14 game. Manfred says "you can rest assured he will be allowed to participate."
   MLB allowed Rose to take part in the All-Century team announcement at Atlanta's Turner Field during the 1999 World Series and a Reds ceremony in 2013 honoring their 1975 and `76 championship teams.
