Phils hope Bastardo turned corner in Colorado
LOS ANGELES -- The Phillies were encouraged with Antonio Bastardo's scoreless appearance in Sunday's victory in Colorado.

He struck out one and threw only seven pitches, which were all strikes.

"If he can have a couple more outings like that, I'm sure his confidence will go up and he'll start turning the ball loose," manager Charlie Manuel said.

The Phillies need a better Bastardo badly. He is 2-3 with a 5.16 ERA in 35 appearances.
