VIDEO: Carlos Gomez homers off Braves, sprints around bases
Last season, Carlos Gomez and the Braves had a fight over a slow home-run trot (among other things). Tuesday, Gomez homered off the Braves and sprinted around the bases.
Absent context, that might not seem like a big deal, but there's history with Gomez, the Braves and a slow home run trot. Remember this, last season?
The best guess is Gomez remembered it and wanted to leave a bit better impression with his foes Tuesday night. Per Tater Trot Tracker, Gomez's time around the bases was a blazing 16.18 seconds.
