It was bad Redlegs fans. Real bad. How bad was it? The last Cincinnati Reds pitcher on Monday night was infielder Scooter Gennett. And he gave up a two-run home run, which puts him on equal footing with most of the Reds real pitchers. The score: Chicago Cubs 15, Cincinnati Reds 5. And it wasn’t that close. Whenever the Reds are in Chicago, they should avoid Wrigley Field as if it is infected with bird flu or swine flu.
Just one night after the Cincinnati Reds played their worst game of the season — and that’s saying a ton — they played one of their best 24 hours later. And most of it can be placed on the strong right arm of rookie pitcher Luis Castillo, who had the Chicago Cubs walking back to the dugout muttering expletives. Castillo, pitching with the moxie and confidence of a three-time Cy Young Award winner, shut out the Cubs on no runs and two hits over six innings, walking two and striking out seven.
Sal Romano’s School of Hard Knocks pitching education continued Sunday afternoon and it was another C-minus. Romano dug his Cincinnati Reds teammates a three-run hole in the first inning and they couldn’t recover and lost, 7-4, to the Milwaukee Brewers. It was their fifth loss in six games in Miller Park this year. When the three-game series began, the Brewers had scored four or fewer runs in 10 straight games, but Cincinnati pitching was the perfect tonic.
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".
