Baseball is amazing because a 22nd-round draft pick from the New Jersey Institute of Technology can stand 60 feet, 6 inches from one of the best hitters on the planet with just one pitch to compete on a night he would never forget. Mark Leiter Jr., in the sixth inning of Friday's 6-1 Phillies win, threw Paul Goldschmidt a cutter. Goldschmidt smacked it toward the right-field line. The Diamondbacks, one of the best offenses in baseball, tallied 26 runs in the previous two days.
PHOENIX — There was nothing left for Scott Kingery at double-A Reading, so the Phillies finally promoted their emerging second baseman to triple-A Lehigh Valley, according to a source. Kingery will join the IronPigs on Monday. He’ll be a part of an infield that includes Rhys Hoskins and J.P. Crawford. The Phillies have hopes that all three of those players will one day form a nucleus in the majors. CSNPhilly.com first reported the news of Kingery’s promotion.
PHOENIX — Edubray Ramos has spent exactly one year in the majors, a year that began with his manager labeling the Venezuelan reliever as “fearless” and ended with three atrocious appearances. The Phillies could have demoted Ramos, 24, after a stretch in which he faced eight batters and seven of them scored. They did not. So Ramos marked the anniversary of his big-league promotion with some introspection.
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".
