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.

Pirates sweep Diamondbacks


PHOENIX (AP) -- Francisco Liriano pitched effectively into the seventh inning in a combined three-hitter and the Pittsburgh Pirates completed their first ever sweep in Arizona with an 8-0 win over the Diamondbacks.
Neil Walker went 3 for 4, including a two-run double, to extend his hitting streak to nine games. He battered Diamondbacks pitching all weekend, tallying 7 hits, 4 doubles, 4 RBIs and 3 runs in 12 at-bats.
The Pirates extended their season-high winning streak to five games and improved to 11-8 on the season. They have won eight of their past 10.
Liriano rebounded from a rocky start to pitch 6⅓ innings of two-hit ball, walking six and striking out seven.
