PITTSBURGH — Milwaukee center fielder Carlos Gomez, Pittsburgh outfielder Travis Snider, the former standout at Jackson High in Mill Creek, and Brewers bench coach Jerry Narron were ejected Sunday after a shouting match quickly escalated into a full-scale brawl.

Several punches were thrown and a couple of players were tossed to the ground.

The problems started when Gomez paused at the plate and flipped his bat after hitting a two-out drive in the third inning off Pirates starter Gerrit Cole. The ball hit the wall and Gomez sped into third base, making a head-first slide for a triple.

Cole, who was near third base backing up the play, stormed toward Gomez and they exchanged words.

Gomez took a couple steps toward Cole before players rushed the field from both dugouts. Milwaukee’s Martin Maldonado threw a punch that knocked off Snider’s hat.

Snider, who wasn’t in the game, and Gomez shoved each other, and the Brewers star fell to the ground.

“I’m not apologetic for anything that I did today,” Gomez said. “I was just doing my job.”
