Veteran infielder hits walk-off home run for Triple-A Charlotte on Memorial Day. White Sox top prospect records multi-hit game for Single-A Winston-Salem.
After being optioned to Triple-A Charlotte by the Chicago White Sox, Cody Asche has had a stellar start with the Knights. Asche on Monday helped the Knights win on Memorial Day with a pinch-hit walk-off three-run home run against the Buffalo Bisons.
The home run helped the Knights defeat Buffalo 9-7 at BB&T Ballpark in Charlotte. With the home run, Asche is now batting .393 with three home runs and nine RBIs through nine games with the Knights. Although Asche is having a nice start with Charlotte, Sox fans shouldn’t expect him to get called-up very soon. Asche struggled in his brief time with the Sox this season as he hit just .105 with one home run.
