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.

   OT still suffering from college injury

 

CHICAGO (AP) - Kyle Schwarber hit a go-ahead two-run home run in the seventh inning, and Kris Bryant had three hits as the Chicago Cubs beat the Cincinnati Reds 5-4 on Tuesday night.

Schwarber sent a deep drive into the left-center field bleachers on a 3-2 pitch from Burke Badenhop (1-4). The blast scored Dexter Fowler, who had singled with two outs.

Bryant drove in two runs for Chicago, which had lost five of six but is still in good shape for its first playoff berth since 2008. The Cubs entered play Tuesday 5 1-2 games ahead of San Francisco for the NL's second wild card spot.

Hector Rondon picked up his 25th save in 29 tries. Fernando Rodney (6-5) allowed Eugenio Suarez's homer in the seventh that gave the Reds a short-lived 4-3 lead but won his first game since the Cubs acquired him from Seattle on Aug. 27.

   TORONTO (AP) - Ryan Goins hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the 10th inning and the Toronto Blue Jays beat Cleveland 5-3 on Tuesday night, snapping the Indians' winning streak at six games.
 
   Yan Gomes hit two home runs and Michael Brantley also connected but it wasn't enough for the Indians.
 
   Toronto's Edwin Encarnacion went 0 for 2 with a walk and a sacrifice fly, ending his career-high hitting streak at 26 games.
 
   Dioner Navarro singled off Bryan Shaw (3-3) to begin the 10th and was replaced by pinch-runner Ezequiel Carrera. One out later, Goins drilled the game-winning homer into the right field bullpen, his fifth.
 
   Mark Lowe (1-2) got one out for the victory as AL East-leading Toronto won for the fourth time in five games and remained 1 1-2 games ahead of the New York Yankees, who beat Boston 3-1.

   CINCINNATI (AP) - The Bengals placed top draft pick Cedric Ogbuehi on an injury list Tuesday, getting down to the 75-man roster limit.
 
   The offensive tackle is recovering from a torn ACL suffered during his final game at Texas A&M. He can't practice for the first six weeks of the season. The Bengals anticipated when they drafted Ogbuehi that he would miss all or most of the season.
 
   Cincinnati also put linebacker Sean Porter on the physically unable to perform list as he recovers from a torn ACL suffered last year. He, too, can practice after six weeks.
 
   The Bengals released receiver Onterio McCalebb with an injury. If no team claims him off waivers, he'll revert to Cincinnati's injured reserve list.

  BEREA, Ohio (AP) - Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel says he's had to manage elbow soreness since his freshman year in college, and that he does not need surgery.
 
   Manziel hasn't thrown a pass since Aug. 23, when his elbow flared up during practice. He was shut down from playing in Cleveland's final two exhibition games and he and the Browns believe rest should take care of the soreness.
 
   Manziel said surgery is not an option and the Browns reached out famed orthopedist Dr. James Andrews for a second opinion.
 
   The 22-year-old says he should be able to resume throwing next week. Manziel is confident the problem will not "creep back" during the regular season.
 
   Manziel said the soreness will never "go away completely" but that it's ordinary for any quarterback.
