Cory Gearrin Optioned, David Wright To DL, Phillies Lose Four Straight: Braves Cup Of Coffee

Recapping the news and scores for May 17:

Braves reliever Cory Gearrin was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett to make room for Julio Teheran (link). It's a tough move for Gearrin after earning his first career win the same day, but he will be back up soon.

Marlins starter Josh Johnson had his MRI results come back negative (link). He should make his next start.

Mets third baseman David Wright was placed on the 15-day DL with a stress fracture in his lower back (link). He should miss 10-15 days.

In other Mets news, Nick Evans and Ruben Tejada were recalled from Triple-A. Chin-lung Hu was sent to the minors.

Cardinals 2, Phillies 1
(STL) Jaime Garcia: 8 IP, 5 H, R, BB, 5 K
(STL) Yadier Molina: 3-4, 2B, RBI
(PHI) Roy Oswalt: 5 IP, 7 H, ER, BB, 3 K

- The Phillies fell to 25-16.
- The Phillies have lost four in a row, including a two-game series sweep by the Cardinals.
- Garcia posted a .287 WPA and lowered his ERA to 1.64.
- Albert Pujols added three hits, including a double.
