Braves Topple Phils 5-1

Lance Cormier didn't give up a home run for the first time in seven starts and earned his second straight win. He's 2 and 4 after giving up a run on four hits over five and two-thirds innings.

The Phillies are 1 and 3 since sweeping a four-game series from the New York Mets last week. The Phils began the day four games behind the first-place Mets in the NL East.

The loss went to Jamie Moyer, who struck out seven but gave up nine hits and four runs in five and two-thirds innings. He's 12 and 11.
