MLB apparently felt that Carlos Gomez‘s postgame Twitter apology wasn’t enough following his incident with the Braves last night, so they’ve suspended the Brewers center fielder for tonight’s game against the Mets.
Gomez homered off Paul Maholm–continuing what has been a longtime quasi-feud–and took his sweet time going around the bases. He then started yelling back and forth with Maholm and first baseman Freddie Freeman. And finally when he reached home plate Braves catcher Brian McCann physically prevented Gomez from scoring, although the umpires counted his run via an interference ruling.
Benches cleared, Gomez was ejected, and now he’ll have to sit out one of the Brewers’ final four games. Braves outfielder Reed Johnson was also suspended for one game, but McCann will apparently go unpunished except for an undisclosed fine, which Freeman also got.
