Carlos Gomez, Reed Johnson suspended one game following brawl
Carlos Gomez and Reed Johnson were suspended one game for their roles in Wednesday's brawl between the Brewers and Braves.
Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez and Braves outfielder Reed Johnson have each been suspended one game and fined following Wednesday's benches-clearing incident. Brian McCann and Freddie Freeman were fined but not suspended.
Surprisingly, McCann was not suspended for his role in the brawl. He stood in the third base line and prevented Gomez from touching home plate following the homer. Hard to believe McCann got off relatively scot-free.
The Brewers open a season-ending four-game series against the Mets on Thursday night.
