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 Down Indians

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Eric Hosmer hit a three-run homer, Jason Vargas shut down the Indians for the second straight start, and the Kansas City Royals went on to beat Cleveland 5-3 on Tuesday night.
   Hosmer also had an RBI triple in the eighth inning, and Alex Gordon drove in another run for the Royals, who bounced back nicely after losing two straight to Detroit over the weekend.
   Vargas (3-1) only allowed two hits, one a two-run shot by Michael Brantley, over six stingy innings. He struck out five while walking two and was rarely in trouble.
   Ryan Madson pitched a perfect seventh for Kansas City, but Kelvin Herrera served up a homer to Lonnie Chisenhall in the eighth, ending his streak of 105 1-3 innings without allowing one.
   Herrera still handed over a lead to Wade Davis, who cruised through the ninth for his sixth save.

Eifert Still Ailing

  CINCINNATI (AP) - Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert is still recovering from shoulder surgery and can't participate in the team's offseason workouts. He's expecting a full recovery by the time training camp opens.
   Eifert severely injured his right elbow during the season opener last year. The Bengals had hoped he'd recover by the second half of the season, but that didn't happen. Instead, he wound up having surgery on his left shoulder to repair an older injury.
   The elbow is doing fine. Eifert can catch passes. He's still got to be careful not to bump the shoulder while it finishes healing, so he's being held out of team workouts.
   The Bengals severely missed Eifert, who is their top receiver as a tight end.
