The Houston Astros are going to the World Series. It’s real. It’s official. The Astros are the champions of the American League, coming back from a 3-2 ALCS deficit to defeat the New York Yankees. The Astros won Game Seven on Saturday night by a 4-0 score, grabbing the lead in the fourth inning on an Evan Gattis homer and never letting the Yankees get back into the game. It’s difficult to single out MVPs for this game as seemingly every Astro in the lineup made a big play.
Game Six looked eerily like most every other game of the ALCS for the Houston Astros. The hitters just couldn’t connect with the pitches. The starting pitcher was throwing an outstanding game, but the fear was it would all be wasted by the failure of the offense and by an inevitable bullpen implosion. But with the Yankees holding the 3-2 series lead, and with the Astros facing elimination, the bats came alive.
The Houston Cougars (4-3) hosted the No. 25 Memphis Tigers (6-1) on Thursday night at TDECU Stadium. Houston led the game 17-0 at the half, but like in Game Four of the ALCS which saw an epic Astros bullpen collapse, this game saw an epic defensive collapse by UH as Memphis got the 42-38 win, scoring the winning TD with 1:28 left. It was the second second half collapse in two weeks for the Cougars, but this defeat was at home in front of a stunned crowd of 30,001.
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".
