It doesn’t look like that.

The Mets led 3-0 after the first inning and 4-0 after the seventh, but the Phillies rebounded with five runs in the eighth thanks to the RBI elimination of Kyle Schwarber, JT Realmuto’s two-run homer and a pair of doubles by Rhys. Hoskins and Didi Gregorius. Bohm started the rally with a walk and finished 1 for 1 with two walks.

The third pick in the 2018 draft was a highly touted prospect and made his MLB debut during the coronavirus pandemic-shortened 2020 season. He finished second in National League Rookie of the Year voting after hitting .338/.400/.481 with four home runs and 23 RBIs in 44 games.

In 2021, Bohm reduced .247/.305/.342 with seven home runs and 47 RBIs in 115 games.

Going into Monday’s game, the Wichita State product had made just one appearance this season, going 2-2 with a brace and a walk in Saturday’s 4-2 win over the Oakland Athletics.

The Phillies 3-1 have the best record in the National League East. Considering it’s the start of the season, Bohm should only be getting comfortable, which would be a good sign for a team looking to qualify for the playoffs for the first time since 2011.
