Carlos Gomez Named National League Player of the Week

The Brewers are hot. Seven wins in a row overall including sweeps of the Giants and Cubs at Miller Park last week have the Brewers with an overall record of 9-8 after a 2-8 start.

With this current hot streak, Major League Baseball recognized the personal performance of Carlos Gomez, naming him National League Player of the Week for April 15 – 21. During that six-game stretch, Gomez hit .500 (9-for-18) with two home runs and three RBI. He extended his streak of three-hit games to three as he recorded three hits in games on April 16 and 17 against the Giants. Yesterday, he recorded his 500th career hit with a single off Scott Feldman.

Did we mention that Gomez also defied the laws of physics by somehow getting out of the way of a Ryan Braun water shower? This photo definitely went viral over the week and was a great moment caught by AP photographer Morry Gash.

Juuuussst a bit outside! Ryan Braun tries to congratulate Carlos Gomez after Wednesday's victory, but Gomez is quick as always!
