There’s only one thing worse than playing in a 21-inning game over two days. Playing in a 21-inning game over two days and losing. On Thursday and Friday, Low-A Delmarva came just 12 innings shy of the record. The Shorebirds fell, 7-6, to Lexington at Arthur W. Perdue Stadium in the longest game – in terms of innings – during the 22-year history of the Delmarva club. Based on time, it was the second-longest game in Shorebirds history at six hours and seven minutes.
The Orioles won’t play again until Friday against the Chicago Cubs at Camden Yards. I hope you enjoy the breather from the daily frustration until then. We’ve reached the All-Star break for the organization’s top two affiliates, too. Triple-A Norfolk (37-53) has the third-worst record in the 14-team International League. The Tides are last in the league’s South Division. Meanwhile, Double-A Bowie (47-42) has surged into a first-place tie with Altoona in the Eastern League’s Western Division.
After a disastrous sweep in Milwaukee, the Orioles only have one, four-game series remaining – beginning tonight at the Minnesota Twins – before the Midsummer Classic on Tuesday in Miami. Four days off in a row will give everyone, except for second baseman and lone Orioles’ All-Star Jonathan Schoop, a much-needed rest. Meanwhile, Triple-A Norfolk and Double-A Bowie will also wrap up the first half Sunday.
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".
