Bohm has a nice night in AFL Fall Stars Game

Phillies top hitting prospect Alec Bohm went 1-for-1 with a walk and two runs scored for the victorious East squad Saturday night in the Arizona Fall League All-Star Game.

Bohm, who started the game at first base, walked to leadoff the bottom of the second for the East. The next batter, Twins prospect Royce Lewis, launched a home run to left-center field to put the East up 2-0. In the bottom of the fourth, Bohm again came up as the leadoff hitter and singled to right. One out later, Josh Lowe (Tampa Bay) doubled to left to score Bohm and give the lead back to the East at 3-2.

Bohm was then replaced by Beer; Astros prospect Seth Beer, who came on to play first base, ending Bohm’s productive night. The East went on to win 4-2, with Lewis (1-for-3, HR, two RBI) being named the MVP.

In the league, Bohm is batting .327/.345/.442 with one home run and seven RBI in 13 games with the Scottsdale Scorpions. He was the lone representative of the Phillies to play in the All-Star Game.
