In the rich history of the Philadelphia Phillies, renowned for their powerful hitters over 142 seasons, achieving six RBIs in a single game is a rare accomplishment. According to StatsCentre, only a select group of players have managed this feat multiple times since 1900, with just seven of them accomplishing it three times or more.

Before Friday’s game against the Chicago White Sox, Alec Bohm, aged 27, was already part of this exclusive club. However, he elevated his status further during the series opener by propelling the Phillies to a commanding 7-0 victory with his six RBIs. This performance earned him a place alongside legendary figures such as Hall of Famer Mike Schmidt and former MVP Ryan Howard, both of whom achieved four six-RBI games while wearing the Philadelphia uniform.

Among them, Schmidt holds the franchise record with an impressive five such performances.

Bohm solidified his position among the elite of that list with a notable performance at the plate on Friday, going 2-for-4. He kick-started his remarkable display with a three-run home run in the first inning. Continuing his offensive onslaught, Bohm added another three-run shot to center field in the third inning.

Despite going hitless in his final two plate appearances, with a flyout and a double play, Bohm had already made a significant impact. His offensive outburst propelled the Phillies to a substantial lead, largely due to his contributions, etching his name in the history books.

For the 2024 season, Bohm maintains a batting average of .258 along with an .834 OPS through his appearances in all 20 of Philadelphia’s games. Since his debut in the Major Leagues in 2020, Bohm has steadily improved, consistently surpassing his previous season’s home run and RBI totals. Additionally, his OPS has shown a steady increase since 2021.

Over his five-year tenure as the Phillies’ primary third baseman, Bohm boasts a batting average of .275, tallying 47 home runs, 256 RBI, and a .735 OPS.

Bohm and the Phillies are set to continue their series against the White Sox on Saturday, with the second game slated to begin at 6:05 p.m. ET.
