36 games into his MLB career and Darin Ruf already has a streak of 33 games of reaching base safely. In those 36 games he's hit .316/.994, 19 R, 9 DBL, 1 TRPL, 7 HR, and 17 RBI. It's a small sample size, but it also goes to show that he's one of the few reasons to tune in and stomach watching the Phillies over the final months of the season. I've been rooting for Ruf for about 4 or so years now and am glad he's finally getting a chance. Earlier this season Amaro defended himself for not having Ruf on the roster by stating just because he hit lots of homeruns in the minors, didn't mean that success would translate to the Majors. Well, Amaro is once again proven to be an idiot. Keep proving him wrong Ruf!
