After playing five of their previous six games on the road, the Roanoke Rail Yard Dawgs will get two shots to earn points at the Berglund Center this week.Last-place Birmingham (3-9-1) visits Roanoke (5-8-2) on Thursday night. After starting the season 0-7, the Bulls have gone 3-2-1 since Nov. 18. Left winger Keegan Bruce has had two game-winning goals during that resurgence.The Dawgs hit the road immediately following that game to face Huntsville (9-4-2) on Friday night.
Go, dude. Run. Don’t stop.That was Salem offensive lineman Thomas Mundy’s only thought as De’Angelo Ramsey broke away down the right sideline in the fourth quarter Sunday night, all speed and power and stiff-arms. Run for you. Run for us. Run for the city. Run for this championship.Salem wide receiver Joseph Quinn threw a quick perimeter block for Ramsey and then knelt and watched, the pain suddenly rushing out of his body. Salem coach Stephen Magenbauer scanned the field for penalty flags.
Whenever he starts talking about almonds, his teammates pounce.“Hey, look! It’s Farmer Mitch!” they say. “Here we go again …”Mitch Mueller laughs. He gets it. There aren’t any other hockey players in that Roanoke Rail Yard Dawgs dressing room who grew up on a Southern California almond farm.That Bakersfield acreage is where Mueller sought refuge last March, when Roanoke cut him with a few weeks left in its inaugural season.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
