Ruiz rests achy hamstring in series opener
NEW YORK -- The Phillies scratched Carlos Ruiz from Monday's lineup at Citi Field because of tightness in his right hamstring.

The Phillies said Ruiz tweaked the hamstring Sunday in St. Louis. They do not believe it is serious.

Brian Schneider replaced Ruiz behind the plate. Shane Victorino moved into the cleanup spot for the first time in his career.
