Carlos Gomez was robbed of extra bases on an excellent catch by Billy Hamilton in the top of the first inning this evening, but he committed some thievery of his own when the Reds came up to bat. Check it out below, as Gomez takes away what would have been a solo home run by Joey Votto:
You have to love Votto’s reaction. Of course, he’s used to it by now. Gomez robbed Votto of a potential go-ahead homer to end a game last year.
Astros third baseman Alex Bregman apparently wasn’t happy with his mustache on Sunday afternoon as he shaved it off in between innings during his team’s contest against the Royals. Bregman walked and later scored in the Astros’ eight-run second inning, but when he took his next plate appearance in the fourth inning, he was clean-shaven.
Bregman made a throwing error in the seventh and finished 0-for-4 with the walk on the afternoon. The Astros won 11-3.
Bregman isn’t the only player to make headlines for his facial hair recently. Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper recently shaved his signature beard. The Yankees approve of what both players have done.
