During Monday’s game against the New York Mets at Citizens Bank Park, Philadelphia Phillies third baseman Alec Bohm revealed that he “f—ing hates this place.”
Monday night was a wild one for the Philadelphia Phillies. They came back from a 4-0 hole in the eighth inning to overcome the New York Mets, 5-4. Bohm managed to make three fielding errors in the first inning, all of which were on throws to first base.
The spectators at Citizens Bank Park cheered sarcastically after Bohm threw out Starling Marte in the second inning. “I f—ing detest this place,” Bohm was heard saying at the time.
After the game, Bohm was queried about it, and he verified that he said it. Bohm said that he didn’t mean to say it and that his emotions had gotten the best of him.
Below is footage of the game in question as well as Bohm’s admission:
Bohm and the Phillies had a rough start to the night, but things turned around in the eighth inning.
Trevor May walked Bohm to begin the bottom of the eighth inning on six pitches, and he was removed from the game shortly after.
After Kyle Schwarber grounded into a force out, Bohm would score Philadelphia’s first run of the game. The Phillies added four more runs after that, thanks to a two-run homer by J.T. Realmuto and RBI singles by Rhys Hoskins and Didi Gregorius.
Brad Hand’s successful save attempt in the top of the ninth inning gave the Phillies a 5-4 victory.
Bohm acknowledged that he said what the audience thought he said, but emphasized that he did not mean it.
