ICYMI: Carlos Gomez Robs Joey Votto Of A Home Run To End The Game, Reaction From Reds Mgr, Dusty Baker

Carlos Gomez
This was a great catch by the Brewers Carlos Gomez denying Cincinnati's Joey Votto a
2 run home run in the top of the ninth.

And here's Gomez after the game.

"Any time Votto hits a ball up in the air like that, you're not sure. The ball carries well here, as we know," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke. "Even when 'Gomey' got to the wall, I couldn't get a good feeling for it. I was hoping it wasn't too far."

Here's Red's manager Dusty Baker's reaction:

When Votto reached second base he wanted the umpire to confirm Gomez had the ball.  Gomez did.

"I thought off the bat it was going to be a non-catch," Votto said. "He went up and made pretty big play in the game. I just wanted to confirm that he had it."

"It was kind of a random way to end the game." Votto said.  "In all likelihood it was going to put us up. It would be a homer -- an actual homer over the fence. Then to have the center fielder take it away from you -- one I'm ironically going to play beside at the All-Star Game -- the whole thing is kind of a random occurrence.
