Asche has a game he'd rather forget





Cody Asche explains his frustration after the game, he can only go out there and keep trying




The Phillies had a rough game 1 against the Angels last night, they lost the game 4-3 and Cody Asche had a game that he'd rather forget as he made 3 errors by himself in the game. Asche let 2 balls play him as he couldn't properly field them, and made a throwing error to home on a close play at the plate to earn his third error on the night.

Asche, who will be 24 in June, has doubled his amount of errors that he's made all season in one single night, he now has 6 on the season which is tied with 5 other players for 3rd most in the NL. Ian Desmond for the Nats and Pedro Alverez from the Pirates both lead the NL in errors with 9. A third baseman is going to make errors over the course of a season though.

That kind of play makes you appreciate some of the Phillies baseball players that they have had at third over the years, namely Mike Schmidt who is a Hall of Famer and ate up nearly every ball that was hit to him down at third base. In 18 seasons at 3rd base, Schmidt did total up 328 total errors (313 at 3rd base) but he had 10 Gold Glove awards as well in his career.
