Prior to Sunday night’s series finale with the Pittsburgh Pirates at Busch Stadium, the Cardinals made a trio of roster moves, including recalling outfielder Randal Grichuk, who had been in the minors since early June. Right-hander Mike Mayers was also recalled, accommodating the placements of Dexter Fowler (heel spur) and Kevin Siegrist (spine) on the 10-day disabled list. The third move was a first-time promotion, as Luke Voit’s contract was purchased; Chad Huffman was optioned to Triple-A.
Early in the week, the Palm Beach Cardinals secured the Florida State League South Division first-half title. The Cardinals sit 42-28 on the season and won the South with a 40-27 record. The Texas League All-Star Game is this upcoming Tuesday, June 27. The Springfield Cardinals will have five representatives, including outfielder Oscar Mercado, infielder Alex Mejia, and pitchers Jack Flaherty, Dakota Hudson, and Matt Pearce.
Here’s a look back on a busy Thursday’s in the Cardinals’ farm system:The Storm Chasers took advantage of an offset Redbirds pitching staff to defeat Memphis on Thursday, 11-3. John Gant started for Memphis and was knocked around more than he has been for quite some time, allowing six runs (four earned) on nine hits through one out in the fourth inning. You may recall his most recent outing before this one, where he three eight scoreless innings against the Sky Sox on June 16.
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".
