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.

Benches clear in win

   
 

   OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Mark Canha hit a two-out double in the 10th inning to drive in Sam Fuld and lift the Oakland Athletics to a 2-1 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Sunday.
 
   Fuld singled off Cody Allen (1-3) before Canha hammered a 3-1 pitch off the wall in left-center. Fuld raced around third base and slid into home, easily beating the relay throw from shortstop Francisco Lindor.
 
   Canha entered the game as a pinch-hitter in the fifth inning. It was the first game-ending hit of his career.
 
   Francisco Rodriguez (2-1) pitched one inning for the win, striking out Lindor with the go-ahead run on third base in the top of the 10th.
 
   Fuld finished with two hits while Billy Burns drove in Oakland's other run.
 
   Lonnie Chisenhall singled and scored for Cleveland, which has lost two straight.
 

  CINCINNATI (AP) - Bengals defensive end Michael Johnson hurt his right knee during practice on Sunday and was taken off the field on a cart.
 
   Doctors initially thought the injury wasn't serious. He was sent for tests. The injury happened during the team's second practice of training camp.
 
   "From everything right now, it seems like everything should be OK," coach Marvin Lewis said.
 
   Johnson returned to the Bengals after spending one season with the Buccaneers. The Bengals are hoping he revives a line that didn't get much pressure on the quarterback last season. Cincinnati finished last in the league in sacks.
 
   The Bengals also are counting on tackle Geno Atkins to play better now that he's had a full year to recover from knee surgery.
 

BEREA, Ohio (AP) - Terrelle Pryor is trying to reinvent his career with the Cleveland Browns, and so far, he's earning rave reviews.

Browns wide receivers coach Joker Phillips said Sunday that Pryor certainly has the talent and willingness to succeed as a wide receiver in the NFL. Now, the 26-year-old former Oakland quarterback just needs to find the consistency in his technique.

Despite the learning curve he faces, Pryor is turning heads in training camp - not just for his size, but for the skillset he is already displaying. The 6-foot-4, 225-pound receiver towers over his teammates at the position, and all have been impressed with his work ethic thus far.

Browns wide receiver Dwayne Bowe even went so far to say last week that there was "no doubt" Pryor would make the final roster.

   LEXINGTON, Ohio (AP) - Graham Rahal won the IndyCar race Sunday in his home state of Ohio, and in the process made up considerable ground on series leader Juan Pablo Montoya with two events remaining in the season.
 
   Rahal held off Justin Wilson on the final restart, on the 84th of 90 laps in the 203-mile race at Mid-Ohio. Wilson ended up finishing second, 3.4 seconds behind. Simon Pagenaud was third, followed by pole winner Scott Dixon. Montoya, who came into the race with a 42-point lead over Rahal, finished 11th.
 
   Rahal now trails by only nine points.
 
   Rahal is a native of New Albany, which is about 45 miles south of the Mid-Ohio course. This was the third IndyCar win of his career and second of the season.

Multiple Renovations to Come in 2016

Brandon Pawlak Convicted of 30 of the 32 Charges Against Him

   COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Backers of a proposal to change how Ohio draws its state legislative districts have raised $26,000 as they seek to get voters to approve the idea this fall.
 
   A campaign finance report filed Friday shows that almost all the money raised by Fair Districts for Ohio comes from the Ohio Education Association, which gave a $25,000 contribution.
 
   Ballot issue campaigns, statewide officers and members of the Ohio Legislature are among those reporting their political fundraising and spending in the semi-annual reports.
 
   Candidates and committees must disclose their contributions and expenses through June 30, though they can include items beyond that date when they file the reports with the state's elections chief.
 
   Ohio Senate Republicans reported raising nearly $2.6 million, while the Ohio House Democrats said they raised almost $410,000.
