Milwaukee Brewers: Remembering the Carlos Gomez era
4 of 7
Carlos Gomez vs. The Nationals
The Brewers had a seven-run lead in the bottom of the eighth inning. First baseman Lyle Overbay hit a soft grounder to second that the Nationals turned into an inning ending double play. Gomez made sure to slide into second baseman Kevin Frandsen as hard as humanly possible.
He didn’t manage to break up the double play. He did manage to draw the ire of then-shortstop Ian Desmond. The two had words and were quickly separated.
It should also be noted that Gomez was drilled earlier in the inning by Nats reliever Taylor Hill. It was pretty clear that the slide was retaliation for the HBP.
