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.

Cards Sink Buccos

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.

Tribe Rallies to Beat Jays

CLEVELAND (AP) - Pinch-hitter Ryan Raburn's tiebreaking, two-run double capped a six-run fifth inning, Jason Kipnis had four hits and the Cleveland Indians overcame a five-run deficit to beat the Toronto Blue Jays 10-7 Sunday.
   Kipnis also homered and drove in two runs for the Indians, who trailed 6-1 after a six-run fourth that included Devon Travis' first career grand slam.

May-Pac Viewing Problems

   LAS VEGAS (AP) - For some boxing fans, the big fight Saturday night turned out to be between them and their cable companies.
   Strong pay-per-view demand for the Floyd Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao fight in Las Vegas caused problems for cable and satellite systems, especially when people tried to order at the last second, which delayed the start of the fight. It's another sting to the reputation of an industry that's already beset with criticism over poor service and competition from streaming video providers.
   Still other boxing fans circumvented cable companies entirely, watching the fight live video-streaming apps such as Meerkat and Twitter's Periscope, which let users broadcast video directly to the Internet from their smartphones.
   Some who used this workaround had tried to buy the fight and failed. Others just didn't want to pay to watch.
