As soon as Aaron Altherr’s bat connected with Addison Reed’s slider over the middle of the plate, his head immediately sunk. From the sound of the bat, the ball seemed destined to turn a one-run lead into a tie score in a matter of seconds in the ninth inning. “I thought it was out,” Reed said after the game with a slight grin. And he allowed the grin after the ball didn’t quite have the distance, bouncing a few inches short of going over the center field wall, giving him new life.
Rafael Montero could have let the game get out of control in the middle of a four-run second inning by the Phillies. Surely, the meltdown was coming following an inning that included a lost nine-pitch battle with Tommy Joseph, RBI singles from Nick Williams and Andrew Knapp and a two-RBI double by Maikel Franco. Except it never did. Montero escaped the second inning, rediscovered his command and kept the Mets in the game before departing after 6 1/3 innings.
Three months ago, Michael Conforto wasn’t guaranteed an Opening Day roster spot. But on July 11, Conforto will be in Miami as the Mets’ lone representative in the All-Star Game after a stellar first half had many taking to Twitter to put the outfielder onto the ballot as a write-in candidate. “I really didn’t think back to that,” Conforto said. “Really, what I thought back to was the hard work that I’ve put in this offseason and in spring training.
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".
