The Phillies put their only run of the day on the board in the bottom of the first. Kenny Lofton - who finished the day 2-for-2 - doubled and scored on a single by Bobby Abreu. Those were two of the five hits collected by the Phillies, while Detroit pounded out 12 hits.
Brett Myers was also touched for three runs in one inning of work when he pitched the third inning. DeWayne Wise, who homered off Franklin Perez in the second, singled to drive in another run off Myers in the third. Wise finished the day 2-for-3 with two runs scored and two RBI.
The two teams meet again Friday in Lakeland.
