In his 10th game at the Class A Advanced Level, Alec Bohm had one of his best performances yet.

The top-ranked Phillies prospect went 2-for-4 with a triple and two RBIs as Clearwater cruised to an 8-3 victory over Dunedin on Friday at Jack Russell Memorial Stadium. It was Bohm's 13th multi-hit game of the season and third since joining Clearwater at the end of last month.


Gameday box score


Bohm struck out against southpaw Nick Allgeyer in his first trip to the plate but made up for it in the third inning by knocking in Rodolfo Duran and Dalton Guthrie with an infield single. He led off the sixth with a triple to right field off Allgeyer and scored two pitches later when Madison Stokes slapped a three-bagger of his own.

MLB.com's No. 53 overall prospect now holds a line of .275/.318/.375 and has driven in five runs through 10 Florida State League games. Between Clearwater and Class A Lakewood, he's hitting .336/.410/.521 with 16 RBIs in 22 contests.

After being selected No. 3 overall in last year's Draft, Bohm put together a .252/.335/.324 line with 17 RBIs across three levels last summer. His longest stay was with Class A Short Season Williamsport, where he batted .224/.314/.290 with 12 RBIs in 29 games.
