On Wednesday night against the Toronto Blue Jays, Mike Moustakas hit his 37th home run of 2017. Moustakas now holds the single-season record for home runs by a Royal. After the game Ned Yost was asked about Moustakas’ record-setting homer and had this to say: “These guys here, they’re going to leave such a legacy on this team. World champions, All-Stars, Gold Glovers, All-Star MVPs, World Series MVPs. They’ve all accomplished so much.
Going into the sixth inning of Tuesday night’s game against the Blue Jays, Ian Kennedy was pitching a shutout. If you’re a Royals fan, this was good news. Kennedy has had a miserable year: he’s 4-12 with an ERA of 5.39 and in 10 of 28 starts has failed to complete five innings. Kennedy is signed through 2020, so any signs of life would be welcome. Unfortunately, Blue Jays starting pitcher Marcus Stroman was also throwing a shutout, so Kennedy did not have much room for error.
Back on Sept. 9 against the Minnesota Twins, the Royals’ Eric Hosmer came up with a big hit with teammate Terrance Gore on second base. Gore scored the go-ahead run and the Royals won that game. The pitcher who gave up Hosmer’s hit was Buddy Boshers. Later, Hosmer would say Boshers likes to throw his curveball, but figured he wouldn’t bounce one with Gore on second base. So Hosmer looked for a high curveball, got one and hit a line drive into center field.
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".
