How to set amount space to the right in string Ruby

Hello guys, I tried a simple program with hash, and i wanna display it like a data table in the console.

I wanna make something like this

ID     Name                    Score

In VB.NET I could set it Console.WriteLine("{0, -5}, {1, -20}, {2, -20}", "ID", "Name", "Score")

The negative number specify the amount of space to the right, I already used \t escape character in Ruby, but is it available in Ruby like VB.NET does?

puts "ID\tName\t\t\t\tCost\t\t\tDescription"
puts "-" * 80
