There's a difference between process and results. Chris Rowley's outing for the Buffalo Bisons on Thursday is a case in point. The right-handed pitcher had his best outing on the mound in terms of execution of pitches and command of the strike zone. But he didn't get a corresponding result as the Bisons fell to the Durham Bulls, 3-1, at Coca-Cola Field. "I try to keep a good balance between process-oriented and results-oriented," Rowley said. "I think process-wise that was the best that I've thrown.
Feast or famine. That's the life of the Buffalo Bisons' offense. After exploding for eight runs on Wednesday, the Herd was on the verge of their 14th shutout before scoring a run with two outs in the ninth. It wasn't enough as the Bisons dropped a 3-1 decision to the Durham Bulls at Coca-Cola Field. More numbers: The Bisons have lost 38 of their last 50 games with 22 of the losses decided by two or fewer runs.
The Buffalo Bisons have been looking for someone to get the big hit. Mike Ohlman finally got it. The catcher belted a two-run home run to left centerfield in the seventh Wednesday night, to kick-start a six-run inning and an 8-3 win for the Herd over the Durham Bulls at Coca-Cola Field. Trailing, 4-2, in the seventh, Jason Leblebijian led off with a single setting up Ohlman who drilled the 2-1 pitch to the base of the outfield flag poles.
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".
