2013 Topps Update #US71 Cody Asche

Phillies 3, Twins 0
Spring Training Game 21 - Monday Afternoon, March 23rd in Clearwater
Record - 10-10-1

One Sentence Summary:  Cody Asche and David Buchanan led the Phillies to a 3-0 win over the Twins.

What It Means:  I find this hard to believe, but according to the National Baseball Hall of Fame, yesterday's game marked the first time two Hall of Famers have managed against each other in a baseball game.  Ryne Sandberg faced off against Twins manager Paul Molitor.

What Happened:  Asche hit his third home run of the spring and Buchanan threw five scoreless innings allowing just two hits.

Featured Card:  For the second year in a row, Asche will be the Phillies opening day third baseman.  I'd like nothing more than to see him have a break-out season and provide the team with the offense they've lacked at that position for years.  Maybe then he'd actually get a few more baseball cards.
