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.

   CLEVELAND (AP) - Abraham Almonte hit his first career grand slam and Josh Tomlin worked into the eighth inning, leading the Cleveland Indians to a 9-2 win over the slumping Los Angeles Angels on Sunday.
 
   Almonte's fifth-inning homer off Jered Weaver broke open a close game and sent Cleveland to its fifth straight win.
 
   Weaver (6-10) didn't get much help from his defense. Center fielder Mike Trout and right fielder Kole Calhoun lost catchable fly balls in the sun, leading to five Cleveland runs.

   MILWAUKEE (AP) - Ryan Braun homered and Wily Peralta pitched seven strong innings to help the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Cincinnati Reds 4-1 on Sunday.
 
   Peralta (5-8) held the Reds to one run and seven hits in a battle of teams fighting to stay out of the National League Central cellar. Peralta struck out six and didn't issue a walk.
 
   Braun's two-out solo home run in the first off Reds' starter John Lamb (0-3) gave the Brewers the early lead.
 
   The Reds tied the score in the second when a soft chopper by Brayan Pena got past Milwaukee's drawn in infield.
 
   Milwaukee grabbed the lead again in the third on Jonathan Lucroy's run-scoring single. The Brewers extended their lead in the eighth. Jean Segura drove in a run with a triple then scored on Lucroy's sacrifice fly.

   PITTSBURGH (AP) - Jorge De La Rosa pitched into the seventh inning before being ejected, and Ben Paulsen hit a two-run triple as the Colorado Rockies beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 5-0 on Sunday.
 
   De La Rosa (8-6) allowed four hits in six-plus innings while striking out seven and walking one. The left-hander's only other win since July 11 - a span of 10 starts - came Aug. 7 at Washington.
 
   Relievers Scott Oberg, Christian Friedrich, Jairo Diaz and John Axford completed the four-hit shutout.
 
   De La Rosa and manager Walt Weiss were ejected for arguing with home plate umpire Jeff Nelson as Weiss went to the mound to remove De La Rosa from the game.
 
   De La Rosa gave up a double to Aramis Ramirez to start the inning, then walked Francisco Cervelli. De La Rosa began yelling and gesturing at Nelson following the walk.
 
   Charlie Morton (8-6) allowed five runs (three earned) over six innings.

CLEVELAND (AP) - Browns rookie running back Duke Johnson is following the NFL's protocol on head injuries after sustaining a concussion in Saturday's win over Tampa Bay.

Browns coach Mike Pettine said Sunday he does not know when Johnson will return. The team has big plans for the versatile Johnson, who was making his preseason debut after being out with a hamstring injury.

With Johnson out, Pettine said the Browns will consider signing another running back. Pettine wouldn't say if former Baltimore back Ray Rice is a possibility.

Quarterback Josh McCown, who threw two touchdown passes in Cleveland's 31-7 win, will not play in Thursday's exhibition finale at Chicago.

The Browns are hoping wide receiver Terrelle Pryor will finally play after being held out with a hamstring injury.
