In journals, magazines, or newspapers, articles frequently have discontinuous page ranges. When citing such pagination, remember to include a space after the comma.

Use an en dash instead of a hyphen between numbers in the page range. En dash (a short dash) is used to mark ranges. 

You can find the guideline regarding discontinuous page numbers and an example in Section 9.25 of the APA Publication Manual.
