Johnson, Gomes Banned After Game Melee

Brewers_Carlos_Gomes_2013NEW YORK — Milwaukee’s Carlos Gomez admitted he went too far with a hyped-up home run trot that ended in a benches-clearing scuffle against the Atlanta Braves.

Gomez was suspended Thursday along with Atlanta’s Reed Johnson for one game by Major League Baseball for their actions during the Brewers-Braves game a day earlier. Both players were fined an undisclosed amount.

Atlanta first baseman Freddie Freeman and catcher Brian McCann also were fined for their involvement.

Gomez accepted his suspension and sat out Thursday night’s game against the Mets.
