ST. CLOUD — Hunter Malachek's all-around game was on full display on Thursday in the Class AA state baseball quarterfinals and he had plenty of help from his friends.Malachek, a senior left-hander, tossed a three-hitter and belted a three-run homer as fourth-seeded Maple Lake eliminated No. 5 Lourdes from title contention with an 11-1 victory in six innings in St. Cloud.
Lourdes has received the No. 5 seed in the upcoming Class AA state baseball tournament.The Eagles (20-6) will face fourth seeded Maple Lake (22-2) in the state quarterfinals at 12:30 p.m. Thursday at Putz Field in St. Cloud. "Looking at it, we thought we might not get seeded," Lourdes coach Dan Herold said. "So if we could get a No. 4 or 5, that's a good fit for us." If the Eagles win in the quarterfinals, they could face top seeded Minnehaha Academy (24-2) in the semifinals at noon Friday.
Lourdes has showed off its versatility in winning baseball games a number of different ways this season. That versatility was on full display Tuesday when the Eagles had their season on the line.Needing two wins over La Crescent to claim the section title, Lourdes was red hot in the first game, claiming a 14-1 win in five innings, and then in the second game, the Eagles secured a 5-4 win in eight innings to earn its second state berth in three years.
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".
