Carlos Gomez trudged back to the dugout in the top of the fourth inning against the Minnesota Twins after grounding out. He broke his bat on a 2-0, one out slider from Twins pitcher Ricky Nolasco and picked up the fragments of his lumber as he made a right turn and headed towards the steps. The camera crew for Fox Sports North followed the Brewers’ outfielder on his path off the field.
Thankfully for Gomez, he was not seriously injured. He could have cracked his tailbone, where he landed, or could have impaled himself while he was carrying two broken pieces of wood. Gomez continued to play in the game, going 1-for-4 with a run scored and two strikeouts. The Brewers went on to lose to Minnesota by a score of 6-4, despite staging a three-run uprising in the seventh inning.
