Carlos and Carlos and Other Seven RBI Games

by Bill Chuck on May 3, 2012

 

Carlos Ruiz

Carlos Ruiz drove home seven runs in the Phils 15-13 11-inning loss to the Braves. BTW: According to STATS LLC, it was the highest-scoring extra-inning game in the majors since Cleveland beat Kansas City 15-13 in 10 innings in 2006.

Ruiz had three hits, including a three-run homer in the 7th and a three-run double in the 8th. He was the first Phillies hitter to drive in seven runs since Ryan Howard against the Yankees on June 20, 2006, also a Philadelphia loss.

This is the 51st time since 1918 that a catcher has had a 7+ RBI game. Ramon Hernandez, Smokey Burgess, Bill Dickey, and Johnny Bench are the catchers who have done it twice.

This is the 19th 7+ RBI game for the Phils since 1918:
