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.

UNDATED (AP) - The Pittsburgh Pirates had a chance this week to move into a tie with the Chicago Cubs for the NL Central lead. Instead, the Cubs have left the Steel City with a six-game lead after completing a three-game sweep of the Bucs.

Jon Lester worked in and out of trouble while tossing 5 2/3 scoreless innings in Chicago's 6-2 win over the Pirates. Lester surrendered eight hits and two walks but lowered his ERA to 1.58. The lefty has allowed fewer than two runs in five of six starts this season.

Ben Zobrist (ZOH'-brihst) opened the scoring with a three-run homer in the third inning of the Cubs' seventh victory in eight games. Anthony Rizzo was 3-for-5 with a solo homer and three runs scored as the Cubs improved to a major league-best 20-6.
