CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) — Carlos Ruiz and Cody Asche each hit a three-run homer to send the Philadelphia Phillies past a Houston Astros split squad 11-3 on Saturday.

Asche connected in the fifth inning to give the Phillies a 3-1 lead, and Ruiz’s drive in the sixth made it 7-3.

Astros starter Dallas Keuchel held Philadelphia hitless for three innings. His only baserunner came on a walk, and he struck out two.

Keuchel has been solid in his first two starts this spring, giving up one hit in five shutout innings.

Phillies starter Roberto Hernandez walked four and struck out four in 3 1-3 innings. He allowed one run and two hits in his third start of the spring.
