Catcher Refuses To Let Smack-Talking Home Run Hitter Cross The Plate

Well, that escalated quickly.

In the top of the first inning of Wednesday night's Brewers-Braves game, Milwaukee center fielder Carlos Gomez and Braves catcher Brian McCann exchanged some possibly not-so-friendly words.

As he started to round the bases, Gomez said something to pitcher Paul Maholm, and the combination of the smack talk and slow walk caused first baseman Freddie Freeman to yell at Gomez to hurry it up (or something like that).

The Brewers would go on to win the game 4-0, and Gomez has since apologized on Twitter, stating, "The way I carried myself on the field is unacceptable, I should have done better to control myself and set a good example."
