Brian McCann vs. Carloz Gomez: who ya got?

During Wednesday night’s Brewers-Braves game in Atlanta, Milwaukee outfielder Gomez hit a bomb off Atlanta’s Paul Maholm, who had hit Gomez with a pitch earlier this season.

Gomez’s extended home run trot was of Jeffrey Leonard proportions (see above). Thing is, Braves’ catcher McCann and other teammates immediately got on Gomez, with McCann blocking the plate and getting in his face.

Benches cleared, players were ejected and Twitter exploded.

Attention Bud Selig: this is what it takes to get people interested in late-season baseball. Hitting for the cycle, near-no-hitters and pennant race walk-offs just don’t cut it anymore.
