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.

Marquis Looks Marquee

 TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Cincinnati right-hander Jason Marquis continued his strong comeback with six good innings in the Reds' 8-6 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday.
   Marquis, 121-114 in 14 big-league seasons, is competing for a spot in the rotation after missing all of 2014 following Tommy John Surgery on his right elbow. In his sixth spring start, he worked six innings and allowed seven hits and three runs with two walks and three strikeouts.
   Andrew Heaney, acquired from the Dodgers in the Howie Kendrick trade, struggled again in his fifth start for the Angels. He allowed eight hits and six runs with five strikeouts over five innings.
   C. J. Cron hit his fourth spring homer, a two-run shot off Marquis in the third inning.
   Chris Dominguez hit his third spring homer off Heaney and had four hits. Irving Falu had three hits for the Reds.

Sox Quadruple Tribe

  GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) - Tyler Flowers and George Kottaras had key doubles in Chicago's three-run fourth inning, spoiling T.J. House's day after he was told he earned a spot in Cleveland's rotation as the White Sox beat the Indians 4-1 on Sunday.
   Flowers doubled to score Gordon Beckham and he later scored along with J.B. Schuck on a long double by Kottaras to give Chicago a 3-1 lead.
   The Indians scored an unearned run off White Sox starter Scott Carroll in the first inning. Jason Kipnis walked and Michael Brantley, returning after he sat out with a sore back, singled. Beckham's wild throw on an attempted double play allowed Kipnis to score.
   Carroll allowed just two hits in three innings.
   House, who will start on April 12 against Detroit, allowing four runs and six hits in six innings. The left-hander has had one bad inning spoil each of his last three starts, but pitched well enough to convince the Indians he belongs in the rotation.
   Michah Johnson had two hits for the White Sox and had a stolen base taken away when Beckham interfered with Roberto Lopez's throw.

Indians Round Out Rotation

  GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) - Zach McAllister and T.J. House have won the two open jobs in the Cleveland Indians' starting rotation.
   Manager Terry Francona told the pitchers on Sunday before House started an exhibition against the Chicago White Sox. The left-handed House and McAllister will follow Cy Young Award winner Corey Kluber, Carlos Carrasco and Trevor Bauer in a rotation the Indians hope can keep them in contention this season.
   House went 5-3 with a 3.35 ERA in 18 starts for the Indians last year. McAllister, who made 15 starts, is scheduled to pitch the home opener on April 10 against Detroit.
   McAllister pitched in relief to end last season. The Indians considered using him out of the bullpen again, but the right-hander earned the starting job with a strong spring.
   Cleveland also optioned Josh Tomlin to Triple-A Columbus. He had been in the starting mix along with Danny Salazar, who also was sent to the Clippers.

Dayton One Step Away from Final Four

   ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Jim Jabir and his Dayton Flyers played UConn four years ago in the Huskies' Thanksgiving tournament.
   They lost by 40, but came away with an understanding of what it took to be an elite program in women's college basketball.
   Now Jabir has the Flyers on an improbable run, one victory away from reaching the school's first Final Four.
   Standing in the way is UConn, a team looking for its eighth straight trip to the national semifinals and a third consecutive championship. The two teams will play Monday night in the Albany Regional final.
   UConn coach Geno Auriemma remembers a time when his team was similar to Dayton. The Huskies were the underdog in 1991. They hadn't won any of their nine national championships yet and had never even made it to the Final Four. But with a talented mix of juniors and seniors, UConn made a run to the national semifinals.
