Phillies' Maikel Franco plates three runs in loss to Rockies
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Phillies rookie third baseman Maikel Franco drove in a career-high three runs in Tuesday's loss to the Rockies.

Franco singled in a run in the third and singled in two more in eighth to tie the game before Nick Hundley launched a solo home run to give Colorado a 6-5 victory. Franco added a double and finished 3 for 4 with a run scored and three RBI. He is hitting .350 (7 for 20) with one home run, five RBI and a .381 on-base percentage this season.

"It's good to see what he's doing with the bat," manager Ryne Sandberg said, per Philly.com. "This was a big game for him. It's something he can feel comfortable with. He's a right-handed bat for us, so a needed guy in the lineup. So far, so good."

Phillies' Sandberg says rookie Franco needs to adjust to pitchers
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg says rookie third baseman Maikel Franco will need to make adjustments at the plate as he moves along this season. Sandberg wants Franco to "think about average first, and power second", he told MLB Network Radio.

The young Franco has four hits in his first 16 at-bats this season, including a home run and a triple. He's also struck out three times and walked once since he was promoted.

He certainly had batting average as his priority at Triple-A this season, as he was hitting .355 in 33 games prior to his recent call-up.

Phillies' Maikel Franco blasts first major-league home run
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Phillies third baseman Maikel Franco went 2 for 4 at the plate in Philadelphia's 6-0 win over the Diamondbacks on Sunday.

Franco got things started in the sixth inning when he ripped a triple to deep center field, scoring a run, his first triple of the season. Then in the eighth, Franco blasted a Randall Delgado pitch over the left field wall for a solo home run, his first in his career.

Franco is now hitting .250 with two RBI in 12 at-bats this season.

"I see him settling in," manager Ryne Sandberg said to Philly.com. "It's great to see him swing the bat and connect. Maybe getting the home run out of the way might go a long way with him, not thinking about a home run but getting quality at-bats."
