Watch Cody Asche Flash the Sick Leather and Then Blast a Homer in Breakout Performance

[mlbvideo id="29663417" width="640" height="360" /]

These have been trying times to be a Phillies fan but after dropping 11-straight games on the road Cole Hamels and the Phillies found a way to earn the 'W' on Monday night in Atlanta. Not only did Hamels earn the impressive win but rookie third baseman Cody Asche gave us a real nice glimmer of hope for the future by having himself one heck of a baseball game.

Kid ain't afraid to get dirty

Asche first wowed in the field when he made a nasty play on a ball that looked to be headed up the middle for a base hit in the third inning. Asche dove to his left and made a very nice stop, hopped right up and made a quick turn and throw that was in time to get Andrelton Simmons.

Oh, to be young and at third base.

Cody added to his big day by doing it at the dish too. He belted a big three-run blast in the sixth to give Hamels the 4-run cushion. He also singled to center in the ninth and would later score on a Chooch single to give Cole a little extra to work with.

All in all, one of the more exciting days from a Phillies youngster in a while.

That Hamels kid wasn't too bad himself.

And a big congrats to Charlie Manuel who earned the 1,000th win as Manager of the Philadelphia Phillies. Jim Salisbury has more on that here.

Sixers to play on new court design, wear special City Edition jerseys with old school bell

The Sixers announced on Wednesday morning that they'll be unveiling their fourth edition jersey in the near future to be worn on seven tribute nights with a "Spirit of 76" theme to them.

It will include a bell logo on both the jerseys and at center court of the Wells Fargo Center.

"'Spirit of 76,' introduces a new 'bell' logo, inspired by imagery from Philadelphia's 1976 bicentennial celebration, a special center-court logo signed by 76ers full season ticket members, collectible tickets and membership boxes for season ticket members," the team said in a statement.

The team will also unveil three new sculptures at their Camden training facility to go along with the campaign.

“We are excited to announce the ‘Spirit of 76’ campaign as it provides another incredible opportunity to celebrate the proud tradition of the 76ers with the city of Philadelphia, our fans, players and alumni,” said Philadelphia 76ers Chief Sales and Marketing Officer Chris Heck. “The ‘Spirit of 76’ campaign honors the legendary icons who paved the way for this organization, while recognizing the passion and intensity of our fans.”

The City Edition jerseys will join the Association Edition (home), Icon Edition (road), and Statement Edition jerseys this season.
