Phillies fans respond to Alec Bohm cursing Philadelphia in legendary way (WATCH)

Philadelphia Phillies fans apologized to third baseman Alec Bohm by giving him a standing ovation in Tuesday's game against the New York Mets. Bohm got off to a rough start to Monday's game between the Phillies and Mets as he made three errors during the first three innings of the game.

After Bohm made a successful throw to first base for an out, the Philadelphia crowd sarcastically cheered him. The cameras then caught Bohm saying "I f------ hate this place." On Monday, the Phillies trailed 4-0 before creating a big comeback to win 5-4.

On Tuesday, the Philadelphia crowd gave Bohm a standing ovation when he was introduced by the announcer.

Bohm: It was cool to receive a standing ovation

"It was cool, it was really cool," Bohm said after Tuesday's 2-0 loss, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer.

"I appreciated it. At the end of the day, if you have siblings, you fight with your siblings one second, and then you're best friends again. "All they want is transparency. We all want the same thing. We're all in this together." Phillies manager Mike Girardi defended Bohm, saying the emotions got the best of him.

"That's about as tough a night as you can have on the field, and emotions got the best of him," Girardi said. "What I'm proud of is he owned up to it, he responded well in the game, he helped us win a game [Monday] and he learned from it.

That's what you have to do." After Monday's game, Bohm apologized to Phillies fans for the comment he made during the game. "I said it. Do I mean it? No," Bohm said. "It's a frustrating night for me, obviously. Made a few mistakes in the field.

Look, these people, these fans, they just want to win. You heard it, we come back, they're great. I'm just sorry to them. I don't mean that."
