PHILADELPHIA -- When Carlos Ruiz hit a smash to deep center field with the bases loaded and two outs in a tie ballgame in the fifth, Jeremy Hefner initially was unsure whether Juan Lagares could run the shot down. "I was holding my breath the whole time," Hefner said. "Juan is an unbelievable athlete. I watched him a little bit in spring training. I didn't get a good feel for what kind of athlete he is. To get to watch him pretty much every day, it's exciting, because he's a good player. The bat is coming around, and it's exciting."
