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.

Royals Rout Reds

   KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Jeremy Guthrie pitched six shutout innings and the Kansas City Royals beat the Cincinnati Reds 7-1 on Wednesday night.
 
   The Royals tied a club record with 24 consecutive scoreless innings, which was set June 9-12, 1976. That streak ended in the seventh when Brandon Phillips' two-out double off reliever Ryan Madson scored Zack Cozart.
 
   The Royals, who won for the fifth time in six games, improved to 26-14, the franchise's best record after 40 games.
 
   Guthrie (4-2) pitched out of a bases-loaded, one-out predicament in the first inning and won his third straight start. He gave up five hits, walked two and struck out three. Guthrie retired 13 on fly balls and two on grounders.
 
   Reds right-hander Jason Marquis (3-4) was pulled after 3 2-3 innings, yielding four runs, four hits, two sacrifice flies, two walks and a wild pitch. In losing his past three starts, Marquis has surrendered 21 hits and 15 runs in 12 1-3 innings for a 15.33 ERA.

Cleveland Clips Chicago

   CHICAGO (AP) - Shaun Marcum won his first start in almost two years, Michael Brantley had a two-run double in the seventh inning, and the Cleveland Indians beat the Chicago White Sox 4-3 on Wednesday night.
 
   Recalled earlier Wednesday from Triple-A Columbus, Marcum went 6 2-3 innings and gave up two runs and four hits and struck out six for the Indians, who have won four of six.
 
   Jose Ramirez had two hits and two runs and reached base four times in a game that began after a 31-minute rain delay.
 
   Marcum (1-0) hadn't started a game in the major leagues since July 6, 2013, for the New York Mets. He was later diagnosed with thoracic outlet syndrome, which involves nerves near the neck and caused tingling and numbness in Marcum's right hand, eventually leading to shoulder surgery.
 
   He's made one appearance in relief this season, throwing five innings and allowing one run against Detroit on April 12.
