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.
