Max Scherzer was closing in on his third-career no-hitter Wednesday, but an unfortunate ground ball ended his run. With one out in the eighth inning, Scherzer still had his no-hitter intact. But Marlins catcher A.J. Ellis sent a ground ball back up the middle. Scherzer instinctively snatched his glove out, looked in his glove thinking it was safely in the webbing, then slumped his shoulder as he turned his attention behind him to see Trea Turner botching a bare-hand attempt. Ellis reached first base.
Rangers third baseman Joey Gallo is not known as a pacey runner, but the big power hitter scampered around the bases for an inside-the-park home run Wednesday against the Blue Jays. Gallo hit a towering fly ball to left field in the fifth inning. Blue Jays outfielder Steve Pearce raced back to get under the ball, but played the ball poorly, and it shot off the wall back into the outfield as Pearce slammed into the wall.
Rory McIlroy returned to action last week at the U.S. Open, and was understandably a little rusty. The four-time major champion has dealt with rib and back pain this year, which has caused him to make just seven starts. Now healthy, McIlroy is ready to embark upon his Travelers Championship debut this week. "I love the course. The course is nice," McIlroy said Wednesday of Connecticut's TPC River Highlands. It's a little change of pace from what we played last week at Erin Hills.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
