Phils fans go crazy on Twitter after Bohm's heroics


The Phillies nearly blew a 4-1 lead against the Red Sox on Tuesday afternoon, in what would've been the latest frustrating loss for a team in the thick of a playoff race.

Instead, Alec Bohm delivered once again.

The 24-year-old rookie Bohm delivered his latest walk-off heroics, roping a two-run RBI single to left field in the bottom of the seventh, giving the Phils the win in the first half of Tuesday's doubleheader.

Bohm, who just last week gave the Phils a walk-off win with a sac fly, is now 11-for-23 with runners in scoring position and is fast becoming a fan favorite all over Philadelphia.

Just look at the way social media reacted to his walk-off on Tuesday:

It's safe to say the kid is pretty well-liked around these parts.Β 

And don't look now, but he might be creeping up on the Rookie of the Year race. NBC Sports Philadelphia's Corey Seidman examined his case:

"Whether or not Bohm wins Rookie of the Year, he looks like the real deal at the plate. His early success has not been fueled by an unsustainable rate of home runs like Domonic Brown or Rhys Hoskins. Bohm has been productive with a consistent line drive approach β€” hard-hit singles up the middle, doubles to left-center and right-center. He is aggressive but has also shown selectivity, and his size helps him cover most areas of the plate."


What fun.
