Not only did Eastern League MVP Darin Ruf break Ryan Howard’s Reading home run record with 38, Justin Friend tied the Reading save record with 24!
The homer was Ruf’s 20th of August, equaling the major league record for most homers in a month by Sammy Sosa in 1998.
In 30 games this month Ruf has 35 RBIs, 29 runs scored, a .372 batting average and a .947 slugging percentage.
Ruf was a 20th-round pick out of Creighton in the 2009 draft. The only good players ever to come from Creighton, despite its proximity to the College World Series, are Dennis Rasmussen, Scott Servais, and Alan Benes.
