The Lakewood BlueClaws probably had to physically put Randy Ruiz on the bus. After collecting seven hits and driving in 10 runs in a weekend series, the Lakewood first baseman may have considered buying real estate in Hagerstown. Ruiz had four hits, including an RBI double in a three-run ninth inning to break a 6-6 tie, Sunday to lift Lakewood to a 9-6 victory for a two-game sweep of the Hagerstown Suns before 1,011 fans at Municipal Stadium. Ruiz went 4-for-5 with five RBI on Sunday on the heels of Saturday's 3-for-6, five-RBI performance.
