The Milwaukee Brewers CF Carlos Gomez gave up his body…literally…with a snag of a long drive by Atlanta Braves phenom Andrelton Simmons on Sunday.  Watch, as Gomez runs full speed, leaps, with a half turn, then plucks the drive out of the air over 400 feet from home plate. Unfortunately his shoulder was a casualty as he was forced to leave the game after the play.  What’s a shame is that the Brewers are nowhere near contention, were down 6-0, and he and his ballclub would have better been served by a play that protected his body more.  Never question his effort, though! Credit: AP Milwaukee Brewers beat writer Tom Haudricourt reported in his Blog and tweeted after the game that Gomez appears to be okay after the scare. #Brewers CF Carlos Gomez thinks he got off lucky. Thinks he’ll be OK “in a couple of days.” Team is off Monday, then 20 in a row. — Tom (@Haudricourt) June 23, 2013 -David Whitlock (@lhd_on_sports) Follow us on Twitter @rbts_baseball The post WATCH: Brewers Carlos Gomez makes amazing catch but suffers shoulder injury appeared first on Reading Between The Seams.
