CHICAGO (AP) -Kyle Lohse's debut with the Phillies was a short one.
The right-hander left after one inning Thursday with a bruised right forearm after he was hit by Jacque Jones' liner.
Lohse had been acquired in a trade from the Reds on Monday for minor league lefty Matt Maloney.
Lohse had a shaky first. He gave up two hits, hit two batters and walked Mike Fontenot with the bases loaded to force in a run. He averted a bigger inning by picking up the ball after he was hit by Jones' liner and throwing him out to retire the side. Lohse threw 29 pitches on a humid 87-degree day.
Phillies pitcher Adam Eaton pinch-hit for Lohse in the top of the second. J.D. Durbin came on to pitch in the bottom half.
