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.


   ATLANTA (AP) - Mike Foltynewicz won his first career start and drove in two runs with his first career hit to help the Atlanta Braves beat the Cincinnati Reds 4-3 on Friday night.
   Kelly Johnson hit a two-run homer in the fifth inning for a 4-3 lead, Atlanta's first of the game, and the Braves snapped a three-game losing streak. Atlanta also won for the third time in 11 games.
   Foltynewicz (1-0), recalled earlier in the day from Triple-A Gwinnett, settled down after a rough, 28-pitch first inning. The right-hander allowed six hits, three walks and three runs - two earned - with two strikeouts in five innings.
   Anthony DeSclafani (2-2) had his worst outing in five starts for the Reds, allowing four hits, four runs and five walks with five strikeouts in five innings.
   The Reds will face the Braves again tonight at 6:40 p.m. on ESPN Cambridge FM 107.9 and AM 1270.  
   Also it was announced that Reds starter Homer Bailey will have surgery on his pitching elbow and miss the rest of the season.
   Bailey tore a ligament in his right elbow and will have Tommy John surgery next Friday. The Reds expect him to be fully recovered in time for next season.
   It's been a tough year for Bailey, who signed a six-year, $105 million deal before the 2014 season. He had surgery last September to repair a tear in the forearm by the elbow.
   He wasn't ready for the start of spring training and opened the season on the disabled list. He was activated and made two starts before feeling pain in the elbow. The Reds say the torn ligament isn't related to the previous problem.

Cards nip Bucs 2-1 in Extra Innings

   ST. LOUIS (AP) - Matt Adams hit a bases-loaded single with two outs in the 10th inning to give the St. Louis Cardinals a 2-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday night.
   The Cardinals have won four in a row, and 14 of their last 17 at home against Pittsburgh.
   The Pirates fell to 4-3 on their nine-game road trip.
   Jon Jay started the winning rally with a two-out single off Rob Scahill (0-2). Matt Carpenter followed with a double down the left-field line, and Matt Holliday was intentionally walked. Adams then laced a 1-1 pitch to left field.
   Randy Choate (1-0) struck out Gregory Polanco with two on for the win.


   COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Residents near a large commercial warehouse in south Columbus that caught fire and sent thick black smoke billowing into the air have been asked to stay inside, shut their windows and doors and avoid breathing in the smoke.
   The smoke is not believed to be toxic, however, and no injuries have been reported.
   About 100 people were working at Columbus Pallet Recycling when the fire started Friday afternoon.
   Firefighters responded shortly after 4 p.m. and were still fighting the blaze hours later.
   Some roads have been closed in the area, and thousands of nearby residents were without power.
   The fire produced a large black mushroom cloud visible from downtown Columbus and spreading miles to the southeast.
   Officials say one-third to one-half of the city's firefighters is battling the blaze.


   OXFORD, Ohio (AP) - The president of Miami University says he will retire in 2016 after 10 years leading the school in southwest Ohio.
   David Hodge announced his plans Friday at a university board of trustees meeting. He says he will retire June 30, 2016, after more than four decades in higher education. He came from the University of Washington in 2006 to become Miami's 21st president.
   He says he is announcing his plans now to allow plenty of time for a national search for his successor.
   The public university based in Oxford has some 24,000 students, including graduate students and its regional campuses.
