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.

Cole Pushes Pirates Past Tribe

 
   PITTSBURGH (AP) - Gerrit Cole overcame a rocky start for his major league-best 12th win and Andrew McCutchen's two-run double capped a five-run fifth inning as the Pittsburgh Pirates rallied past the Cleveland Indians 5-3 Sunday.
 
   Cole (12-3) set down his last 16 batters after the Indians scored twice in the second inning and once in the third to take a 3-0 lead.
 
   Cole threw 106 pitches while allowing three runs and five hits in eight innings. He struck out five and walked one after going winless in his previous two starts while pitching a combined 11 1-3 innings.
 
   Mark Melancon posted his NL-leading 27th save as the Pirates won for the fifth time in six games.
 
   McCutchen's tiebreaking double off the top of the center-field fence was the last of six Pirates' hits in the inning off Danny Salazar (7-4).

USA Women End Long World Cup Drought

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - Team USA sits atop the women's soccer world after the Americans' third World Cup crown, but first since 1999.

In an offensive explosion rarely seen in soccer, the Americans scored four goals in the opening 16 minutes -- three on a hat trick by Carli Lloyd -- and routed Japan 5-2 for the Women's World Cup crown. That avenged a loss in the 2011 final when Japan won on penalty kicks. It was the highest-scoring final in Women's World Cup history.

"We just made history," Lloyd said moments after the win. "I was on a mission."

When it was over, Lloyd collapsed to her knees and pumped her fists. Forward Abby Wambach (WAHM'-bahk) bear-hugged teary-eyed coach Jill Ellis, lifting her off the ground.

Lloyd scored the two fastest goals in Women's World Cup history, scoring twice in the first six minutes of the match. Lauren Holiday gave the U.S. a 3-0 lead when she volleyed a shot into the goal. Lloyd finished her hat trick by catching Japan goalkeeper Ayumi Kaihori off her line and scoring from midfield as the U.S. took a stunningly quick 4-0 lead. It the fastest hat trick in Women's World Cup history. Tobin Heath added a second half goal after Japan had climbed within two goals.

With Vice President Joe Biden and wife Jill in attendance, the Americans attacked with ferocity and then played smart on defense. U.S. goalie Hope Solo had her streak of 540 shutout minutes end when Japan scored midway through the first half, but Japan never seriously threatened.

The U.S. has had great success against teams from Japan with a record of 25-1-6.
