SAN FRANCISCO — Pirates manager Clint Hurdle spent Monday and Tuesday talking about how different AT&T Park plays during day games, then experienced it first-hand in Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the Giants. Hurdle was talking about how much easier it becomes to launch the ball over the walls of the Giants' home when the sun is out than when the cool night air takes over.
OAKLAND – Within sight and sound of the BART tracks and Highway 24, butterflies have found a refurbished home. An orphaned bit of turf between buildings on the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland campus has become a new focal point for not just butterflies but hummingbirds and humans, too. It’s the Butterfly Garden, just steps away from what used to be the entrance to the main wing of the hospital.
SAN FRANCISCO — The sinker James Taillon threw in the Pittsburgh bullpen Tuesday couldn't have been much better. The one he took into the game, however, was as bad as it has ever been in any of his 32 big league starts. The 25-year-old right-hander gave up a career-worst 10 runs in an 11-3 loss to the Giants that dropped the Pirates back under .500 at 50-51. “That pitch has got to be down; that's where I find I get the weakest contact,” Taillon said after falling to 6-4.
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".
