Ruiz's big night spoiled with walk-off loss
ATLANTA -- Carlos Ruiz had a career-high seven RBIs on Wednesday, but he did not get a chance to enjoy it.

"It was a nice game, but we still lost," he said. "I feel like I could have called a better game. But at the same time, you have to give credit to Atlanta. They never gave up. They were fighting."

Some facts on Ruiz's night:

• Since RBIs became an official statistic in 1920, no Phillies catcher had that many RBIs in a game.

• Ruiz was the first player to have seven RBIs in a game since Jayson Werth had eight on May 16, 2008, against the Blue Jays.

• No Phillies player had seven RBIs on the road since Greg Luzinski on June 11, 1977.
