Carlos Ruiz Retires Side In Pitching Debut

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — 38-year-old Carlos Ruiz has been a major league catcher for a long time.

On Tuesday night, he became a pitcher for the first time in his career.

The Mariners had to deal with a 20-run and 28-hit explosion from the Twins and with starter Christian Bergman going just 2.2 innings, Ruiz was called upon in the 8th inning with his team trailing 20-6.

Ruiz allowed two hits, two walks, and an earned run but did eventually retire the side after 30 pitches (14 strikes).

Chooch can do it all.
