SEATTLE — Mike Trout was named American League player of the month following the best April of his young career. Trout hit .364 with a .443 on-base percentage and a .707 slugging percentage in April. Trout hit seven homers and drove in 18 runs. He finished the month with a 14-game hitting streak, which he extended to a career-best equaling 15 in the first game of May on Tuesday. He beat out New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge, who hit .303/.411/.750 with 10 homers.
SEATTLE — The last time Matt Shoemaker walked off the mound at Safeco Field, he was clutching a bloody towel to his face, likely just happy that he was conscious. This time, he walked off with the more mundane frustrations of life as a pitcher, too many misplaced pitches. And by the time it was over, both were distant memories, replaced by the satisfaction of the Angels’ rollercoaster 6-4, 11-inning victory over the Seattle Mariners on Tuesday.
SEATTLE — A day after learning that Tyler Skaggs could be out for three months with a strained oblique, the Angels were still trying to figure out how to replace him. “It’s disappointing to get that news,” Manager Mike Scioscia said Tuesday. “We’ve been challenged a little with some setbacks, but we’ll keep going.”Scioscia said they were still looking at options to take the ball on Thursday, the next time Skaggs’ turn would come up in the rotation.
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".
