VIDEO: Carlos Gomez robs would-be Joey Votto HR to end game

By Matt Snyder | Baseball Writer

The emergence of Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez as a star continues.

Let us set the scene.

The Brewers were clinging to a one-run lead, 4-3, in the top of the ninth with a runner on first base and Reds superstar Joey Votto at the plate. Votto sends a pitch ticketed for the batter's eye -- a would-be home run that would give the Reds a 5-4 lead in the ninth. The Brewers would then be tasked with facing Aroldis Chapman.

But Gomez did this:

Given the degree of difficulty in terms of properly timing the jump in addition to knowing the the game is on the line, it doesn't get much better than that.

Then there's this:

Then there's this, Gomez's offensive numbers: .308/.349/.552, 20 doubles, nine triples, 13 homers, 41 RBI, 49 runs and 20 stolen bases.

Welcome to stardom, Mr. Gomez.
