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.

   Bruce the difference in defensive struggle

 

   CLEVELAND (AP) - Corey Kluber took a shutout into the ninth, rookie Francisco Lindor hit a three-run homer and had a career-high four RBIs, and the Indians avoided a winless homestand with a 12-1 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday.
 
   Michael Brantley, Yan Gomes and rookie Giovanny Urshela hit solo homers for Cleveland, which had been outscored 37-10 in losing the first six games of the homestand. Michael Bourn was 4 for 5 as Cleveland had a season-high 18 hits.
 
   Kluber (6-11) held Kansas City to five hits. The reigning Cy Young Award winner retired the first 12 batters before Eric Hosmer's leadoff double in the fifth. Alex Rios' RBI groundout in the ninth scored the Royals' only run.

PITTSBURGH -- Andrew McCutchen hit a home run and had three RBIs to help Pittsburgh beat Minnesota 10-4. 

 
McCutchen had an RBI single as part of the five-run sixth inning that put the game away for the Pirates. 
 
Jung Ho Kang homered for the second straight day for Pittsburgh.

   CLEVELAND (AP) - Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona has been ejected in the fifth inning against Kansas City.
 
   Francona was thrown out by plate umpire Tom Woodring after the Indians' Michael Brantley was hit in the leg by a pitch from Jeremy Guthrie.
 
   Francona was upset that Guthrie wasn't ejected because Woodring had warned both benches after the Royals pitcher hit Jason Kipnis in the second inning.
 
   Francona argued with Woodring and crew chief Gary Cederstrom before leaving the field to a loud ovation.
 
   The ejection was Francona's third of the season and 39th of his career.
 

   DETROIT (AP) - For the last five years, the Mid-American Conference West has belonged to the Huskies of Northern Illinois.
 
   A sixth straight title isn't going to be easy.
 
   The conference released its preseason poll Wednesday and Northern Illinois is picked to finish third, behind Toledo and Western Michigan.
 
   Toledo received 11 of the 24 first-place voters, with Western Michigan getting eight to Northern Illinois' four. Central Michigan picked up the final first-place vote.
 
   In the East, Bowling Green is a favorite to reach its third straight conference championship game. The Falcons got 18 first-place votes, ahead of three for UMass, two for Akron and one for Ohio.

Cincinnati faces St. Louis this evening on ESPN Cambridge beginning at 7:45 p.m.
