Carlos Gomez vs. The Pirates

Brewers outfielder Carlos Gomez thought he clubbed a homer, and started his trot prematurely. After he realized the ball wasn’t going to clear the center field fence, Gomez kicked it into high gear and made it to third

Pirates starter Gerrit Cole greeted Gomez at third with a few pleasantries. After time was called, Gomez took on essentially the entire Pirates bench until the cavalry arrived. Gomez was literally on his own against about 10 Pirates until the Brewers made their way over to get in the middle.

This featured a fantastic hit, the dangers of pimping a homer before it goes over the fence, and a real life version of 1 vs. 100.
