Ruiz has home run overturned by instant replay

PHILADELPHIA -- Phillies catcher Carlos Ruiz had a home run in the third inning Sunday night against the Braves correctly overturned by instant replay.
Facing Braves lefty Alex Wood, Ruiz hit a ball to left field that hit the top of the wall. Third-base umpire Gary Cederstrom ruled the ball a home run as Ruiz cruised into second base.
It was ruled a double as instant replay showed the ball hit the top of the green padding and ricocheted back onto the field.
