Jul 23, 2017 at 8:10 pm | Print View CEDAR RAPIDS — Jeff Pacha apologized for the cliche, but he really believes in it.“I’m a goal-oriented person,” the Iowa City Regina baseball coach said. “At the beginning of the year, we had to understand what our goals were. It’s about, as a team, playing your best baseball at the end of the season. It’s a process to get there.”The process has led to the goal.
The Cedar Rapids Kernels outfielder flailed away and failed at the plate when he first got here from extended spring training. His batting average was .083 at its lowest. But he worked and worked, improved on some things mechanically and has that BA up to .238 after a three-hit game Sunday that helped Cedar Rapids to an 8-5 win over Lansing at Veterans Memorial Stadium. “If you get into a hole as a baseball player, you have to know how to get out of that hole,” Morrison said.
CEDAR RAPIDS — Manager Tommy Watkins came out to get the baseball from Griffin Jax with two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning Saturday night. It seemed kind of peculiar timing because the Cedar Rapids Kernels pitcher had just gotten an out on a routine flyball to center field and seemed poised to get another one. His team was well ahead at the time. But Watkins had a reason to do what he did, and it was a really nice one.
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".
