The 10-pitch at-bat with the game on the line (bases loaded, two outs) in the seventh inning of Tuesday’s Phillies-Dodgers game involved a pitcher offering up nothing but fastballs hovering in the high 90s and a rookie with the plate discipline of a veteran, never giving in and fouling off four pitches. The hitter was Rhys Hoskins, who was in the lineup at Triple-A Lehigh Valley six weeks earlier. The pitcher was Pedro Baez. The score was tied.
Say it ain’t so, L.A.After 11 years together, the Phillies radio team of Scott Franzke and Larry Andersen aren’t exactly breaking up after the 2017 season, but Andersen will adjust to a reduced role in 2018. Andersen told reporters last week that he simply wanted more time off.
The impossible would be that the Phillies, who spent most of the summer as the worst team in baseball, would have a chance to complete a four-game sweep against the Dodgers, a team that just a month ago was flirting with matching the 1908 Cubs and 2011 Mariners for the best regular season record in baseball history. But, here we are.
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".
