Chooch's Revenge

Carlos Ruiz Thursday got hit by a pitch for the league-leading 10th time this season. But at least he has made a habit of making the team that plunks him pay for it.

Twice, he was hit by a pitch in what would be his last plate appearance of the game. In the remaining at-bats of the other eight games, he is 10-for-22 (.455) with eight RBI and a .727 slugging percentage:
