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.

Cavs Make Offers to Three

 CLEVELAND (AP) - Tristan Thompson, Matthew Dellavedova and Iman Shumpert all received qualifying offers from Cleveland on Tuesday, meaning the Cavaliers can match any offers those players get from other clubs this summer.
 
   Thompson is of particular importance to the Cavaliers, who went to the NBA Finals this past season. He has appeared in 308 consecutive games, has averaged 10.1 points and 8.4 rebounds over his career and saw his stock soar by averaging 9.6 points and 10.8 rebounds in this year's playoffs.
 
   Dellavedova had big playoff moments, with seven double-figure games. Shumpert started 16 playoff games for the Cavs, who lost the finals to Golden State 4-2.
 
   Also Wednesday, the Cavaliers said forward Mike Miller exercised his $2.85-million option for next season. Miller averaged 2.1 points in limited action this season.

Tribe Sinks Rays

   ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Danny Salazar pitched two-hit ball for 7 2-3 innings and the Cleveland Indians backed him with three home runs to beat the Tampa Bay Rays 6-2 Tuesday night.
 
   Jason Kipnis, Giovanny Urshela and David Murphy homered for the Indians, driving in all six runs.
 
   Salazar (7-3) retired the first 15 batters, the third time in the last six games that's happened to the Rays. Indians rookie Cody Anderson took a perfect game into the seventh Monday night and Toronto's Marco Estrada was perfect through the seventh last Wednesday.

Twins Overcome Delay, Reds

CINCINNATI (AP) - Torii Hunter homered again after a long delay at the start of the game, and Phil Hughes got his third straight victory, leading the Minnesota Twins to an 8-5 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday night.
 
   The start was delayed 2 hours, 1 minute because a storm was headed toward the ballpark. The storm dissolved on the way.
 
   Hunter got the Twins going by hitting a solo homer in the first inning off Anthony DeSclafani (5-6), his fourth homer in the last four games. He later singled and doubled.
 
   Eduardo Nunez had three hits, including an RBI single while Kurt Suzuki drove home two runs with a single during a four-run seventh inning as the Twins evened the interleague series.
