CSN Philly: GIF: Kyle Lohse tackles Ryan Howard to the ground

Careful! The Phils don’t want to see Howard’s trade value go down.

Kyle Lohse went from pitcher to hitter to NFL safety in the time it took him to run to first base.

The Milwaukee Brewers righthander had himself a night against the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday, picking up the win and racking up three hits in a 9-5 victory over the worst team in baseball. One of those hits did not come easy, however, as Lohse wound up running right into the backside of mammoth first baseman Ryan Howard while trying to leg out an infield single.

Lohse is listed as 6’2”, 215 pounds. Ryan Howard is 6’4”, 250 pounds (if you believe that).

Howard wound up hitting the deck.
