Ruiz HR Lifts Phillies Over Padres 7-3

San Diego Padres v Philadelphia Phillies

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Carlos Ruiz went 3-for-3 with a homer and three RBIs and John Mayberry Jr. homered and drove in three runs to lead the Philadelphia Phillies to a 7-3 win over the San Diego Padres on Friday night.

Vance Worley (3-2) allowed three runs on six hits, striking out nine, in six innings to help the Phillies snap a three-game losing streak.

Placido Polanco had a pair of doubles for Philadelphia, which was playing its first game after manager Charlie Manuel’s much-publicized team meeting on Wednesday with the slumping five-time NL East defending champs who entered Friday four games below .500.
