Sandberg has Phillies going back to basics

Ryne Sandberg on Friday fulfilled his promise that the Phillies would work more on their fundamentals. He had his players on the field in the afternoon at Citizens Bank Park, working on the basics following a sloppy 9-1 loss Thursday to the Marlins and an overall sloppy start to their season, which included a 5-11 record and 17 errors, which tied the Nationals for the most in Major League Baseball.
