Carlos Ruiz took his 10th 0-for-4 collar of the season Friday night, so we're itching to see what he has in store for the Braves on Saturday.

In his next start following his previous nine 0-for-4s, he's hitting .419 (13-for-31), with a .486 on-base percentage and a .742 slugging percentage (four doubles, two homers). He's also scored four runs, knocked in six, taken a walk and been hit by three pitches.

And, oh, by the way, he is just 5-for-13 (.385), in starts following 0-for-3s.

Below are Chooch's 0-for-4 and the stats from his next start:
