• Asche was not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Cubs. But Sandberg said the rookie would be able to play if needed, but he did not enter.
"Cody's fine to come off the bench," Sandberg said. "[The Cubs] just happen to have a lefty [starting] today [Chris Rusin], so I thought I'd give him one more day. But he's good to go."
• Outfielder Domonic Brown, who had to leave Friday's game in the sixth inning due to soreness in his right Achilles, was also not in the lineup for Saturday's contest. Sandberg said that, like Asche, Brown was available off the bench. But unlike Asche, Brown did play -- striking out as a pinch-hitter in the ninth.
"Domonic is day to day," Sandberg said. "He'll be limited today as far as his usage, but he'll be available in some capacity for the game."
• According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the Phillies' 6-5 win over the Cubs on Friday was only the fourth time in the 98 seasons that the Phillies have played at Wrigley Field that they won after Chicago had scored the first five runs of the game.
The last time that happened was in 1998, when the Cubs scored five runs in the first inning against Curt Schilling.
