Brian Bogusevic hit a pair of homers off Anibal Sanchez as the Phillies edged a Tigers split-squad 5-4 on Saturday.

Bogusevic, who played for the Astros and Cubs from 2010-13, is trying to get back to the majors with the Phillies after spending last year with the Marlins' Triple-A club. He's now 5-for-11 this spring, so he'll probably get a longer look. Still, he'd seem to be a rather weak bench option for the Phillies.
