The San Jose Earthquakes are feelin’ all shook up. The Vancouver Whitecaps buried the San Jose Earthquakes in a cascade of second half goals, winning 5-0 for their first-ever MLS playoff win Tuesday night at BC Place. The Whitecaps had solid performances from front to back, particularly from substitute Nicolás Mezquida who scored two goals in quick succession late in the second half.
For a second week running the Vancouver Whitecaps failed to get the result they needed to finish first in the Western Conference. After a 1-1 draw against the San Jose Earthquakes last weekend, the Whitecaps needed a draw or a win against the Timbers to claim first place and a first round playoff bye. Instead they suffered a 2-1 loss in Portland, which sets up a winner take all knockout match against San Jose on Wednesday or Thursday. Vancouver finishes third in the Conference.
The character and determination of the 2017 Vancouver Whitecaps can no longer be questioned. Days after suffering a humiliating loss to the Seattle Sounders, the odds looked to be stacked against the Whitecaps as they played in-form Sporting Kansas City at Children’s Mercy Park on Saturday night. To Vancouver’s credit, they quickly put the Seattle loss behind them to earn their first-ever victory in Kansas City, winning 1-0.
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".
