KISSIMMEE, Fla. — Darin Ruf's day was prematurely ended in the sixth inning Sunday when former Phillies prospect Jarred Cosart drilled him on the arm with a pitch.

Ruf, who did not appear to be in overwhelming pain as he walked to the Phillies clubhouse, was struck above his left triceps. While icing it, he said through a team spokesman that he felt fine.

It was the fourth time Ruf was hit by a pitch this spring.

Halfway through the exhibition season, Ruf is hitting .188 (6 for 32) with three doubles. He was 0 for 2 Sunday.

Cosart, traded to the Astros in the Hunter Pence deal, later hit Phillies infielder Josh Fields. Fields took exception and started jawing at Cosart. Players rushed to the top steps of the dugouts but did not empty onto the field. Cosart allowed four runs in 1 2/3 innings.
