    Phillies LF Cody Asche cranks third home run on Saturday

    Phillies left fielder Cody Asche was the lone bright spot in an otherwise meager offensive display on Saturday against the Cardinals. Asche went deep for his third home run of the season, a solo home run which accounted for all of the Phillies' scoring in the 10-1 rout. The home run was Asche's first since April 22. Asche has generally been struggling at the plate after spending some time in the minor leagues. Since his return on May 29, Asche is batting .200 with 13 strikeouts to just three walks. "It's not what I expect out of myself, not what I know that I have in me," Asche said, per MLB.com. "That gets frustrating at times. I'm not a .230 hitter, I know that. I'm not going to be. It's just a thing you've got to keep working through. Hopefully they keep trusting me and trusting in my ability. Hopefully tonight is a step in the right direction."
