    A 7-year-old girl drowned in a community pool in St. Cloud Saturday evening, police said. Emergency workers responded to a possible drowning at the pool for the Anthem Park Subdivision at 2050 Remembrance Avenue a little after 5 p.m. Officers performed life-saving measures on the girl, who has not been identified, until she was transported to St. Cloud Hospital, where she was declared dead. The girl and her family were visiting from out-of-town, police said. Investigators determined the girl and her friends were in the pool without their parents' knowledge or permission. Police said there were several other people in the pool when this occurred. The investigation is still ongoing, police said. % INLINE %
  • Two women were hospitalized after a crash sent a car into an Orange County home, firefighters said. The crash occurred in Rosemont around 6 p.m. near the corner of North Lane and Westgrove Way. Neighbors told Channel 9's Cierra Putman the driver of a Ford Explorer crashed into several vehicles, including a Jeep that slammed into the house on Westgrove Way. Curt Freeman witnessed the crash and said he's surprised the driver of the Jeep survived. 'I'm very shocked because the way she hit that driver side door, I'm surprised it didn't cave in on her. It was a crazy situation that happened. It seemed like it was in slow motion, but it happened,' said Freeman. Witnesses said the driver of the Ford Explorer got into the car in the parking lot of the Sky Pines apartment complex, plowing into multiple vehicles in the parking lot before attempting to turn left on North Lane. 'From what I saw and my son saw, she went right out there and hit that vehicle with no, no care in the world,' said Freeman. The driver of the Jeep was catapulted into the house in the Crystal Cove subdivision, witnesses said. 'It was loud, it was loud, like when the space shuttle comes back in, it was loud,' said Freeman. The driver of the Ford Explorer kept going until she also crashed, slamming into a tree further east down North Lane. Orlando police have not released any details about the crash and whether any arrests will result. % INLINE %
  • SeaWorld is under investigation by two federal agencies who subpoenaed statements made by the company and its executives on or before August 2014 regarding the impact of the 'Blackfish Documentary,' according to Securities and Exchange Commission filings published Friday. The theme-park company reports receiving subpoenas in June from the U.S. Department of Justice as part of an investigation into statements about the 2013 anti-captivity documentary 'and trading in the Company's securities.' The filing also indicates the company received similar subpoenas from the SEC, although it is unclear when those were received. Read: SeaWorld's loss widens as fewer people visit its parks 'The Company has cooperated with these government inquiries and intends to continue to cooperate with any government requests or inquiries,' the filing says. The filing also indicates the company's board of directors formed a special committee with legal counsel as to how to handle these investigations on June 16, two days after the company's shareholder meeting. The full SEC disclosure reads as follows: In June 2017, the Company received a subpoena in connection with an investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice concerning disclosures and public statements made by the Company and certain executives and/or individuals on or before August 2014, including those regarding the impact of the 'Blackfish' documentary, and trading in the Company's securities. The Company also has received subpoenas from the staff of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in connection with these matters. On June 16, 2017, the Company's Board of Directors formed a Special Committee comprised of independent directors with respect to these inquiries.

  • Dylan Bundy helped Baltimore avoid a dubious pitching record, throwing seven solid innings as the Orioles beat the Tampa Bay Rays 8-3 Saturday. The Orioles had given up at least five runs in 20 straight games, matching the major league mark set by the 1924 Philadelphia Phillies. Bundy (8-6) allowed three runs and five hits in seven innings. Relievers Donnie Hart and Mychal Givens combined to keep the Rays scoreless over the final two innings. Jose Alvarado (0-3) walked the only batter he faced, Seth Smith, leading off the seventh. He was replaced by Jumbo Diaz, who gave up a two-run double to Mark Trumbo and Trey Mancini's two-run homer that put Baltimore ahead 7-3. Baltimore also got a second-inning, two-run homer from Welington Castillo and Adam Jones hit a solo shot in the third. Corey Dickerson and Evan Longoria homered on consecutive pitches in the third for the Rays. Rays catcher Wilson Ramos singled in four at-bats in his season debut. The 2014 NL All-Star with Washington missed the first 76 games this season after right knee surgery.
  • The Baltimore Orioles' long run of mound misery is over. Dylan Bundy helped Baltimore avoid a dubious pitching record, throwing seven solid innings as the Orioles beat the Tampa Bay Rays 8-3 Saturday. The Orioles had given up at least five runs in 20 straight games, matching the major league mark set by the 1924 Philadelphia Phillies. Baltimore went 6-14 over the stretch. 'It's one thing to identify a problem, it's another things to solve it,' Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. 'We're in the business of trying to solve issues. You can start by looking at them and realizing that you have them, but I don't think anybody's got to tell us we've had problems with our starting pitching.' Bundy (8-6) allowed three runs and five hits in seven innings. Relievers Donnie Hart and Mychal Givens combined to keep the Rays scoreless over the final two innings. 'The story of the game was, probably, Dylan Bundy,' Rays manager Kevin Cash said. 'He did a nice job kind of quieting our hot bats.' Bundy struck out eight and walked four. 'He did what he does best, he was attacking the hitter with the fastball and changeup and slider,' Orioles catcher Welington Castillo said. 'It was great to see him do that.' Jose Alvarado (0-3) walked the only batter he faced, Seth Smith, leading off the seventh. He was replaced by Jumbo Diaz, who gave up a two-run double to Mark Trumbo and Trey Mancini's two-run homer that put Baltimore ahead 7-3. 'It starts with a leadoff walk ... I sound like a broken record saying that,' Cash said. Baltimore also got a second-inning, two-run homer from Castillo and Adam Jones hit a solo shot in the third. Corey Dickerson and Evan Longoria homered on consecutive pitches in the third for the Rays. Rays catcher Wilson Ramos singled in four at-bats in his season debut. The 2014 NL All-Star with Washington missed the first 76 games this season after right knee surgery. Tampa Bay rookie Jake Faria wound up with a no-decision after winning each of his first three starts in the majors. He permitted three runs and five hits over six innings. Faria had pitched at least 6 1/3 innings in his first three starts, allowing one run each time. The Rays tied it at 3 in third when Dickerson had a two-run drive before Longoria went deep on Bundy's next pitch. Tampa Bay set a team mark with their major league-leading 10th set of back-to-back homers this season. Tampa Bay has sixth straight multihomer games, one off the franchise high. TRAINER'S ROOM Orioles: Closer Zach Britton (left forearm strain) could move his rehab assignment from Class-A Delmarva to Double-A Bowie on Monday. Rays: RHP Brad Boxberger (strained flexor mass) was expected to be reinstated from the disabled list this weekend but has oblique discomfort and will have a Sunday bullpen session. SMITH'S SURPRISE NFL Hall of Famer Emmitt Smith surprised his sister Marsha Smith-Hill, who threw the ceremonial first pitch as part of a cancer survivor salute, by joining her on-the-field. MORE MANCINI Mancini has 13 home runs, tying Eddie Murray (1977) and Curt Blefary (1965) for the most by Baltimore rookie before the All-Star break. UP NEXT Orioles: RHP Chris Tillman (1-5, 8.39 ERA) makes his 10th start since returning from right shoulder bursitis in the series finale Sunday. He allowed five runs and eight hits in four-plus innings Tuesday, but Baltimore's 6-5 comeback win over Cleveland enabled him to avoid losing a sixth straight start. Rays: RHP Jake Odorizzi (4-3, 3.78 ERA) will look Sunday to avoid tying Wilson Alvarez's team record set in 1998 of allowing a homer in 11 consecutive appearances.
  • When Jon Lester gave up a three-run homer in the first inning Saturday, he drew upon a long-ago lesson from former teammates Curt Schilling and Josh Beckett: Start the start over. Lester retired the next 13 in a row, went seven innings and helped the Chicago Cubs rally past the Miami Marlins 5-3. After J.T. Realmuto homered on a hanging curve to put Miami up 3-1, Lester (5-4) allowed only two more baserunners, both on singles. 'When you give up three in the first, you have to try to figure out a way to pitch innings,' Lester said. 'That's one thing I learned at an early age in Boston with Schill and Josh: Man, it doesn't matter, we start over. You have to take that mindset, and not keep looking at the scoreboard.' Eventually the scoreboard favored the Cubs. Javier Baez had an RBI single in the fourth, and his two-run double in the sixth put them ahead to stay. Jon Jay, a one-day sub for Anthony Rizzo in the leadoff spot, had two hits and scored a run. Addison Russell had two hits and scored twice. Lester beat Miami for the first time in five career starts. He has gone at least six innings in each of his past three starts, and the Cubs have won them all. 'He is pitching as well as I've seen him pitch,' manager Joe Maddon said. 'I feel better now than I did in April and May for sure,' Lester said. 'Some years you come out like gangbusters. Other years it just takes a while to get into that rhythm of pitching every five days. This was one of those years.' His colleagues in the rotation are warming up, too. Cubs starters have an ERA of 2.52 over the past 11 games. Wade Davis completed the four-hitter with a 1-2-3 ninth for his 15th save. The Marlins have only 16 hits in their past four games but have won two of them. 'We're swinging at some pitches we shouldn't be swinging at,' Realmuto said. Miami's Justin Nicolino remained winless in five starts, allowing three runs, two earned, in four innings. The damage might have been worse, but catcher Realmuto, third baseman Martin Prado and first baseman Tyler Moore helped him with fine defensive plays. Third baseman Baez and second baseman Ian Happ made flashy plays to rob the Marlins. 'The defense in the infield played really, really well,' Lester said. USING THE FIELD Happ, Almora Jr. and Baez all had run-scoring hits going the opposite way. 'That was awesome to see,' Maddon said. 'We're just trying to get these guys to understand there's more than one side to a baseball field.' CUBS FANS SHOW UP The crowd of 25,448 was the largest at Marlins Park since May 13. Some spectators cheered for the home team. RESTING UP 1B Rizzo was given a breather and held out of the lineup. 'I don't want to beat him up,' Maddon said. 'We've got a long way to go, and if you ride them too hard, the point of diminishing returns will set in. I've been a part of way too many teams that have been exhausted in September.' When Rizzo pinch-hit in the ninth, he drew perhaps the biggest cheer of the day, startling Maddon. 'I was looking around — 'Did somebody walk in the door? Is it A-Rod and J-Lo?'' Maddon said with a smile. ''Oh, it was Anthony.'' Rizzo will be back in the leadoff spot Sunday, Maddon said. TRAINER'S ROOM Cubs: 2B Ben Zobrist (left wrist) is unlikely to return for the Cubs' next series against the Nationals, and a rehab stint is a possibility. ... LHP Brett Anderson (strained lower back) will begin a rehab assignment Sunday when he pitches for Double-A Tennessee. Marlins: SS Adeiny Hechavarria (oblique), who has been the disabled list since May 10, is expected to the rejoin the Marlins on Tuesday for the start of their series against the Mets — if he's not traded before then. UP NEXT Miami RHP Edinson Volquez (3-8, 4.29) is scheduled to face LHP Mike Montgomery (1-3, 2.26) in the series finale Sunday. ___ More AP baseball: https://apnews.com/tag/MLBbaseball
