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.

Pirates Shrink Giants

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Gerrit Cole struck out a nine to win his third straight start, Neil Walker hit a tiebreaking two-run double in the fifth after a pair of called strikeouts, and the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the San Francisco Giants 4-3 on Monday night.

Andrew McCutchen had two likely hits stolen by great plays in the outfield and he instead settled for sacrifice flies against Ryan Vogelsong (4-3).

Cole (8-2) struck out the side in order in the fourth, then worked a 1-2-3 fifth before loading the bases with none out in the sixth. He got out of it with a strikeout of Brandon Belt and inducing Brandon Crawford's inning-ending double play.

Belt's two-run, two-out double in the first put San Francisco ahead in a rematch of the NL one-game wild card won 8-0 by the eventual champion Giants last October at PNC Park.

Warriors' Thompson Returns to Practice

   OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson has returned to practice after suffering a concussion last week.
 
   Thompson was a full participant in Monday's practice, a major step in the All-Star shooting guard's recovery. The Warriors say Thompson still needs to receive final clearance from doctors to play against the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night.
 
   Warriors coach Steve Kerr says he expects Thompson will be cleared to play.
 
   Thompson suffered a concussion after getting kneed in the head by Houston's Trevor Ariza in Golden State's Western Conference finals clinching win Wednesday night. Team doctors initially cleared Thompson to return to the game. He ended up not playing, and the team said he started developing symptoms after the game.

Bengals' Still, Daughter Receive Award

   LOS ANGELES (AP) - Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Devon Still and his 5-year-old daughter Leah will receive the Jimmy V Perseverance honor at the ESPY Awards in July.
 
   Leah was diagnosed last June with stage-4 neuroblastoma, a rare form of cancer in young children. Still said last week that his daughter "hit a pretty serious complication" in the process of getting a stem cell transplant, with her liver affected by chemotherapy.
 
   Still agreed to a one-year contract to stay with the Bengals in March. The team donated $1.3 million from sales of his jersey to research and treatment of pediatric cancer.
 
   The award is named after the late Jim Valvano, who died of cancer less than two months after receiving the honor at the 1993 ESPYs. Other former recipients include Sacramento Kings coach George Karl and the late ESPN anchor Stuart Scott.
