HERE’S THE ALEC BOHM 8TH-INNING ERROR THAT SANK THE PHILS!

By Mike Murphy

The Phillies’ four-run rally against the Brewers in the top of the eighth inning gave them a 5-3 lead.

But a costly error in the bottom of the inning cost them a crushing 7-5 loss.

With the Phils clinging to a one-run lead with two outs and the bases loaded, Owen Miller hit a grounder toward third off reliever Jeff Hoffman that appeared as if it would end the inning.

But third baseman Alec Bohm misplayed the ball, allowing it to trickle up the left-field line as three runners came around to score to cap a wild rally for the Brewers, who collected two hits and two walks against the Phillies’ bullpen before Bohm’s decisive error.

“It was a pretty easy play and I messed it up. It’s as simple as that,” Bohm said.

“Everybody makes errors. It came at a bad time. It’s not the end of the world. It’s just a play I’m going to make most of the time — probably every time. But I didn’t make it and that’s it.”
