ST. LOUIS (AP) — Philadelphia third baseman Alec Bohm left the Phillies’ game with an apparent hand injury after sliding headfirst into second base Monday night.

Bohm singled to left-center against St. Louis in the second inning with two outs and tried to stretch his hit into a double. He dived into second, immediately began to favor his left hand and appeared to say “it’s broken” to someone on the field.
