Play of the Day: Carlos Gomez robs Jay Bruce’s three-run home run

10 Comments

Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez already has one of the three NL Gold Gloves for outfielders locked up, but he decided to pad his resume in case anyone was still on the fence about his defensive prowess. With two runners on base with two outs and the game tied 5-5 in the ninth inning, Jay Bruce crushed a Jim Henderson slider to dead center. Gomez ranged back, slowed down on the warning track, then timed his leap to grab the descending baseball before it could clear the fence. Gomez saved three runs and gave his team the opportunity to go into the bottom of the ninth to win. They did, as Sean Halton hit a one-out, solo home run to center off of Reds reliever Zach Duke for the walk-off, 6-5 victory.
