"Emotions got the best of me," said Bohm, who was a former top prospect who's struggled since becoming an everyday player for the Phillies. "I said it. Do I mean it? No."
"It's [a] frustrating night for me. Obviously, I made a few mistakes in the field. Look, these people, these fans, they just want to win. And, you heard it. We come back. They're great. I'm sorry for them. I don't mean that. Emotions just got the best of me."
Bohm then said he actually loves playing in Philly.
As for the game, the Phillies were able to come back from down 4-0 to win the contest, 5-4 ... which we're sure will make Bohm's apology at least a tiny bit easier to accept.
