A pretty vicious brawl just went down at PNC Park after Carlos Gomez of the Brewers went into home run celebration mode after slugging a Gerrit Cole pitch to the top of the center field wall …

Lots to dissect in the aftermath. Cole walked over to Gomez at third base and began jawing at him. Gomez left the bag and began jawing back, then chucked his helmet at Travis Snider. Martin Maldonado appeared to land the biggest punch. Ryan Braun and Andrew McCutchen seemed to want no part in the fracas.

Gomez and Snider were both ejected from the game, and Gomez is probably facing a suspension.

Happy Easter Sunday, everybody.
