Here are five things the Cubs need to do to beat the Dodgers in Game 3 of the NLCS at Wrigley Field on Tuesday night (8 p.m., TBS). 1. Show more patience at the plateThe Dodgers have drawn 13 walks in the first two games of the series; the Cubs have drawn just two. The Dodgers’ on-base percentage is .371, more than double the Cubs’ .159. As Theo Epstein has long preached, "90 percent of the game revolves around controlling the strike zone." The Cubs need to be disciplined and work long counts.
The full spectrum of human behavior – from bad to good – was on display during Monday's White Sox-Twins game at Guaranteed Rate Field. And the White Sox, to their credit, came out in defense of the good. The Sox invited 15-year-old Ryan Baker to Thursday's game as a special guest, their way of rewarding him for keeping his cool after a fellow fan snatched a foul ball from his grasp on Monday and refused to return it. Baker got to meet Sox players on the field and spend time in the broadcast booth.
Notre Dame will wear special uniforms honoring legendary player and coach Knute Rockne for the Nov. 18 game against Navy. The uniforms feature a vintage “ND” logo as well as a modernized version of the old-school brown leather high-top cleats worn in Rockne’s era. "The older style ND logo was taken from one of Rockne's varsity sweaters that he wore in 1912," explained Under Armour designer Nick Billiris.
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".
