If you’re looking for a feel-good story, look no further than San Diego Padres rookie Rocky Gale. The 29-year-old catcher has spent the last seven-plus seasons playing almost exclusively in the minor leagues, but his patience and perseverance all paid off with one glorious swing during Wednesday’s 13-7 loss to the Diamondbacks. In the second inning, Gale connected for his first career home run — a two-run shot against Arizona left-hander Robbie Ray in the second inning.
Philadelphia Phillies rookie Rhys Hoskins has enjoyed a record-setting start to his career. Since making his major league debut on Aug. 10, Hoskins has clubbed 18 homers, setting a ridiculous pace that’s not likely to be equaled again any time soon. Can Hoskins keep it up? That it is the question. And no better authority than Hall of Famer, Phillies legend and eight-time NL home run champion Mike Schmidt stopped by the Yahoo Studios this week to weigh in.
Boston Red Sox left-hander Chris Sale reached a significant single-season milestone on Wednesday, recording his 300th strikeout in a 9-0 win against the Baltimore Orioles. In doing so, Sale became the first American League pitcher since Pedro Martinez, also with the Boston Red Sox, recorded 313 in 1999. Martinez’s mark is the Red Sox single-season record, which Sale could still challenge this season. Sale reached 300 on his 13th and final strikeout of the game.
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".
