In the top of the ninth inning of Monday night’s Brewers-Reds game, Cincy 1st baseman Joey Votto came to the dish with his team down a run and down to their final out. With a runner on first Votto launched a bomb to straightaway centerfield that for all intents and purposes looked like a sure home run that would have put the Reds in front 5-4, and would have left the Brewers to face Cincinnati’s hard throwing closer Aroldis Chapman. Unfortunately for Votto and the Reds, Carlos Gomez happened. The budding Milwaukee superstar went up and over the wall to rob Votto of his go-ahead homer and preserve the win for the Brewers. According to Eye on Baseball this was Gomez’s 4th such bit of home run larceny, although I doubt any were as dramatic as this one. Have a look at Gomez’s web gem… The gamut of emotions on that play is unbelievable. From Gomez’s pure moment of elation, to Brewers reliever Francisco Rodriguez’s look of astonishment, to Votto’s reaction of anger and disbelief, this play had more drama than a David Mamet film. The post Carlos Gomez robbed Joey Votto of go-ahead home run to end game (VIDEO) appeared first on Last Angry Fan.
