Wherever Carlos Gomez goes, drama and hot tempers are sure to follow.
The animated Milwaukee Brewers outfielder, who has rubbed more than his fair share of opponents the wrong way with his antics, found himself in the middle of another benches clearing situation on Sunday afternoon in Pittsburgh, and this time it escalated into a full scale baseball.
The melee happened in the third inning right after Gomez bat flipped and admired what he thought was a home run off the bat. The baseball ended up hitting high off the center field wall at PNC Park, leaving Gomez to settle for a triple. And waiting for him there to express his displeasure with his antics was the man who served it up, Pirates right-hander Gerrit Cole.
A shouting match ensued and the situation escalated quickly after Gomez charged towards the gathering of Pirates separating him from Cole throwing wild hay-makers. Pirates outfielder Travis Snider cut off the barrage by throwing Gomez to the ground, which seemed to end the first phase of the brawl. After some standing around and more jawing, Pittsburgh catcher Russell Martin tried getting at Gomez but was restrained by teammate Gaby Sanchez.
