Surging Bats

Carlos Ruiz continued to hit well in limited playing time this week. Chooch batted .500 with four walks and a double in two games played.

Cameron Rupp also had a good week, hitting .333 with two RBI in four games behind the dish.

Utility man Jimmy Paredes capped off a decent week on Sunday, batting .400 with a homer and three RBI.

Ryan Howard is still batting like it’s 2009, hitting .357 with a homer and eight RBI this week. If he can keep up this pace, a team could take a swing at him at the August 31st waiver trade deadline.
