Philadelphia Phillies third baseman Alec Bohm accidentally bloodied himself while taking out his frustrations on his bat in the dugout during the team’s 7-2 win over the Los Angeles Angels Saturday.
Bohm finished the night 0 for 4 with two strikeouts and saw his batting average dip to .251. The Phillies went up 2-0 in the first inning, but when Bohm struck out, he was miffed.
Philadelphia scored three runs after that and finished with the five-run victory over Los Angeles. Blood was seen streaming down Bohm’s neck after the mishap.
“Guys get frustrated,” interim manager Rob Thomson said, via NBC Sports Philadelphia.

“That’s a situation there where you don’t want to see a guy get hurt, but guys do get frustrated and bang the bat rack every once in a while.”
Philadelphia moved to 2-0 under Thomson with the victory. Thomson became manger when the Phillies fired Joe Girardi after going 22-29 to start the season.

Thomson said he received about 350 text messages after his first win since being promoted from bench coach.
“I’m still preparing certain things that I need during the game, but there’s less of that, and it’s more about being with the players, communicating with them,” he said.
