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 St. Louis Cardinals are a major league-leading 18-6 following their third straight extra-innings victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates.
The Redbirds followed their 2-1 wins on Friday and Saturday by downing the Bucs 3-2 on Kolten Wong's homer in the 14th inning. Pittsburgh took a 2-1 lead when Pedro Alvarez homered in the 12th, but Peter Bourjos extended the game with a bases-loaded single in the bottom half.
The Cards have matched the best 24-game start in team history, last done in 1944.
