Bench-clearing brawl with Gomez starts off Milwaukee win over Atlanta

By Jay Sorgi. CREATED Sep 25, 2013 - UPDATED: Sep 25, 2013

A long ball out of the park by Carlos Gomez led to a fight during the Milwaukee Brewers-Atlanta Braves game Wednesday night in Atlanta.

Gomez launched a first-inning home run, and made lots of verbal commentary around the base paths as he headed home.

But between 3rd base and home plate, he and Braves catcher Brian McCann got into it.

Watch:

As recapped by MLB.com's Adam McCalvy:

The home run was allowed. Gomez was ejected after the hit, along with the Braves' Freddie Freeman.

Third-baseman Aramis Ramirez was injured during the brawl, hurting his knee.

As tweeted by former Brewers and current Braves radio voice Jim Powell:

Gomez talked after the game about there being past history between the sides this year.

In the game, Kyle Lohse pitched a two-hitter to power Milwaukee to a 4-0 win.
