Detroit Tigers manager Brad Ausmus didn’t literally pull his batting order out of a hat Sunday, but it was random selection nevertheless. “Just mix it up and see what happens,” he said. “I don’t know that there is any logic behind it, you just hope it changes your luck.”Trying to prevent the club’s first nine-game losing streak since September 2005, Ausmus moved Miguel Cabrera into the second spot in the order. Justin Upton and J.D. Martinez slotted up to the third and fourth spots.
“We had it set up the way we wanted and we just didn’t get it done,” said an angered manager Brad Ausmus after the Tigers lost for the eighth straight time, 7-3 to the Padres on Saturday at Petco Park. “From me to the coaches to the players, we just haven’t gotten it done; simple as that. “We’ve got to be better. The results we’ve gotten the last 10 days we should be embarrassed by. Not embarrassed by the effort, because they are trying and they care.
San Diego — You can’t blame Bruce Rondon for wanting to change the narrative. There he was on Saturday, once again encircled by reporters asking questions about whether this is his last opportunity with the Tigers. “At first I was worried about whether I would be back up here,” Rondon said through Tigers translator Bryan Almonte. “I just focused on working hard and doing whatever I can could to get back. All I could control was to work hard.”Rondon is no longer the Tigers’ closer of the future.
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".
