Ruf seizes rare opportunity with first walk-off hit

The opportunities have been few and far between for Phillies outfielder Darin Ruf, but he took advantage Tuesday. He hit a 1-1 fastball to right field in the bottom of the ninth inning against Reds left-hander Tony Cingrani to score the winning run in a 5-4 victory. It was the first walk-off hit of Ruf’s big league career.
