|Cardinals Bullpen Spoils Strong Wainwright Outing against Phils
|PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Carlos Ruiz hit a game-ending home run in the 10th inning and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the St. Louis Cardinals 2-1 Tuesday night after another fan ran onto the field at Citizens Bank Park.
On Monday night, a teenager was Tasered in the outfield after eluding security for about 30 seconds. This man gave himself up without incident, and was booed by the sellout crowd.
The latest fan on the field may have ruined Cole Hamels' rhythm. The Phillies starter was cruising to that point, taking a six-hitter into the ninth. But after the man ran on the field, Hamels quickly allowed consecutive doubles to David Freese and Yadier Molina to tie the game.
Ruiz homered against Blake Hawksworth (0-1) leading off the bottom of the 10th.
