Jose Lobaton catches foul tip in mask for third strike (Video)

Your browser does not support iframes. Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Carlos Gomez had what will likely be the most bizarre strikeout of his career on Tuesday night.

Carlos Gomez Somehow Gets Ball Stuck In Jose Lobaton’s Facemask (Video)

In the second inning of Tuesday’s Washington Nationals-Milwaukee Brewers game, Nationals catcher Jose Lobaton held on to a Carlos Gomez foul tip to record the strikeout. Just not how you’d think.

Brewers’ Carlos Gomez fouled off a pitch straight into the catcher’s mask of Nationals’ catcher Jose Lobaton. This is a prime example why catchers wear masks.

WATCH: Nats catcher Jose Lobaton catch ball with his mask

The catcher position has to be the most physically demanding position in baseball. The Washington Nationals would agree with that statement due to the numerous injuries at that position over the last few seasons. During the second inning, Carlos Gomez fouled off a pitch by Jordan Zimmermann and instead of going to the backstop, it ended up in Jose Lobaton’s mask. Watch the play...

Jose Lobaton latest Ray to provide 'magical' moment

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- There are moments in a special season, Tampa Bay Rays manager Joe Maddon understands, that defy logic and predictability. As they become more frequent, these sequences build upon one another, like bricks in a tall structure. They become part of a team's identity. They become less of a surprise.
