NEW YORK -- The Mets haven't done enough winning this season, so when one does come along, no one should be questioning how. A two-RBI single from T.J. Rivera with two outs in the bottom of the sixth concluded with the third baseman scoring all the way from the batter's box on a throwing error.
NEW YORK -- By any metric there is for hitting at the Major League level, Jose Reyes is hot. Over his last 20 games entering Friday's contest against the Oakland Athletics, the Mets shortstop is hitting .371, slugging .657 and has an OPS of 1.044. His July has been particularly torrid, hitting .377 and slugging .660 with an OPS of 1.042. All of this, mind you, is coming on the heels of an anemic April in which Reyes hit .174 in 86 at-bats.
NEW YORK -- Steven Matz has not looked healthy in seven starts this season, but his last two starts entering Friday night were particularly gruesome. In two losses, Matz lasted a combined 5 1/3 innings, giving up 16 hits and 12 earned runs. Friday against the Athletics represented his first start after getting booed off the field following nine hits and seven earned runs in just one inning against the Colorado Rockies.
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".
