The Philadelphia Phillies scored the winning run against the Atlanta Braves Sunday on a controversial ninth-inning play at the plate involving sophomore Alec Bohm.
After aggressively tagging up from third on a shallow flyball to left, Bohm decided to sprint home in an attempt to break the 6-6 tie. Braves outfielder Marcell Ozuna made the throw in to catcher Travis d'Arnaud and forced a very close play at the plate.
Home-plate umpire Lance Barrett ruled Bohm safe. However, after closer inspection, Bohm seemingly missed home plate entirely on the slide. Following a review of the play, the call on the field was upheld.
Hector Neris was then summoned from the bullpen to record the final three outs in the battle of division rivals, completing the victory.
