Phillies' Darin Ruf hits pinch-hit homer in loss to Nationals
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(4/12/15) Darin Ruf could be in for some more playing time if he continues to have at-bats like Sunday's.
Pinch-hitting for Ryan Howard in the seventh inning, Ruf hit a deep solo home run to left field in the Phillies' 4-3 loss to the Nationals. Ruf's homer tied the game in the moment.
Ruf went without a hit in his first 11 at-bats this season. His home run could give him some confidence at the plate moving forward.
"You want to be the best player you can be in any role you are in," Ruf said, via MLB.com. "You play yourself into roles, and that role can change through the course of the year. I'm looking to stay positive and keep working hard."
