Lofton & Thome to DL; Howard & Byrd brought up

May 3, 2005, 8:42 PM EDT

Prior to tonight’s game which the Phillies are currently winning 8-1 in the top of the 5th, the Phillies placed Jim Thome and Kenny Lofton on the DL and brought up Ryan Howard and Marlon Byrd.

Niether Howard nor Byrd were in the starting lineup against the Mets.

Hopefully these two youngstars can give the Phillies a nice spark in what has been a rather bleak few weeks for the Phillies.
