Well, we can go ahead and give Carlos Gomez his Gold Glove. The center fielder for the Milwaukee Brewers robbed Joey Votto of a go-ahead home run in the top of the 9th inning to end the game. It very well might be the play of the season thus far.
Here is the Carlos Gomez GIF:
The Cincinnati Reds thought they were going to take the lead — until the native of the Dominican Republic reached his glove over the fence and snared the would-be homer.
And while we are talking about awards, Carlos Gomez should be in the running for the NL MVP. He has the highest WAR in all of baseball, which could be enough to sway voters. After seeing this play, I’m on board!
