Brewers outfielder Carlos Gomez thought he had himself a leadoff homer against the Phillies on Wednesday. So sure in fact that he confidently trotted around the bases without giving any second thought to the ball he hit pretty darn close to the foul pole actually being a foul ball.
This is why it was hilarious seeing Gomez’s reaction after he had already rounded third base when found out his apparent eighth home run of the year was indeed foul. The Philly crowd gave him a hard time about it, as they well should have.
So, how did Gomez recover from this embarrassing turn of events? By striking out looking. Not one of the more sterling at-bats anybody’s ever seen, but when you’re Carlos Gomez, there’s been worse.Google+
