We already know USC will represent the Pac-12 South in the conference title game, but its opponent is yet to be decided. Stanford, Washington State and Washington are still alive in the race for the Pac-12 North with two weeks of conference play remaining. The Pac-12 Championship Game will be played on Friday, Dec. 1 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif. (8 p.m. ET, ESPN). Here are the scenarios for each of the three North teams still alive in the race.
Ross Stripling made strides and improvements over his rookie season, all while transitioning into a different role on the Dodgers pitching staff in his second season. After getting used mostly as a starter in 2016, Stripling found a role in the bullpen for the bulk of 2017, pitching 47 of his 49 games in relief. Stripling led the Dodgers in relief innings (69⅓) and was second in the bullpen with 69 strikeouts.
The Dodgers last winter traded pitcher Jose De Leon for Logan Forsythe, who provided solid and versatile infield defense and plate discipline but saw his power disappear in 2017. Patience was a virtue in 2017 for Forsythe, who led the Dodgers with 69 walks. His 15.7% walk rate dwarfed his career mark of 8.1% heading into this season. Forsythe hit .290/.418/.452 against left-handed pitching, with 11 doubles and three home runs in 153 plate appearances.
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".
