NEW YORK — The Yankees will begin a three-game series against the Twins on Monday at Yankee Stadium, and it could be a playoff preview. Entering Monday, the two teams held the AL Wild Card spots. There's a chance the Yankees overtake the Red Sox and win the AL East, but that's becoming more and more unlikely with three games to make up and 13 games left to play. So with the looming possibility that the Yankees play the Twins in the one-game playoff, will this series help?
NEW YORK — With a comfortable lead atop the AL Wild Card standings, the Yankees are almost certainly headed for the playoffs. But the AL East is still within reach, and they've maintained that winning the division is their ultimate goal. That's why Sunday was such a costly defeat. On a day the Red Sox lost to Tampa Bay, a rough performance from Sonny Gray put the Yankees into a hole they couldn't climb out of as they fell to the Orioles, 6-4, before a crowd of 38,189 at Yankee Stadium.
Gregorius hit a solo home run off Ubaldo Jimenez in the second inning of Sunday's 6-4 loss to the Orioles at Yankee Stadium, giving him 24 for the season. That tied him with Derek Jeter for most home runs in a single season by a Yankees shortstop. Gregorius wasn't exactly in awe of the accomplishment. "I’m just trying to play the game," Gregorius said. "I’m not worried about the careers or the records.
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".
