Early in Saturday's game against the Los Angeles Angels, the Philadelphia Phillies infielder was dissatisfied with himself. With runners on second and third in the first inning and Michael Lorenzen on the mound, Bohm struck out swinging.

He took his anger out on his bat as he returned to the dugout. And then there's the bat rack. And, eventually, his neck. The barrel of his bat smashed back into his neck when he slammed the knob of his bat against the rack.

He'd drawn his own blood by the time he regained his composure.

Fortunately for the Phillies, they scored five runs in the first inning on their way to a 7-2 victory. Thankfully, that wasn't the end of Bohm's day or the start of a hospital stay.

Bohm's wound was only superficial. He returned to the game and completed it. He didn't help his stat line by going 0-for-4 with two strikeouts at the plate.

Following Joe Girardi's departure on Friday, the Phillies won their second consecutive game under temporary manager Rob Thomson. Hopefully, Bohm was able to take advantage of the Phillies' newfound success.
