Carlos Gomez leaped over the fence to grab a Joey Votto potential go-ahead homer with a spectacular catch for the final out, saving the Brewers’ 4-3 victory over the Reds.

“When you save the game like that or when you hit a walk-off home run, it’s amazing,” Gomez said. “I never hit one, but I steal home run to win the game. It’s something special, like you can’t wait to get home to see it over and over.”

“The whole thing is really a random occurrence and it’s what makes baseball so special,” Votto said. “Carlos has had a fantastic year this year. Today he didn’t have a good game offensively and he goes out and makes a game-changing play on the defensive end.

“You know, I did everything I could, and he made a great play.”

Homer Bailey, who lost his Johnny Vander Meer with one out in 1st when Jean Segura singled, was the losing pitcher for the Reds.
