Gomez, Freeman ejected in 1st during argument

ATLANTA (AP) - Milwaukee Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez and Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman were ejected in the first inning after both benches cleared during an argument.

Reserve Atlanta catcher Gerald Laird was also ejected.

Gomez, the second batter, hit his 23rd homer to make it 1-0 off Paul Maholm. As soon as he hit the ball, Gomez stood in the batter's box watching the ball sail into the left field seats and flipped his bat behind him.

As Gomez started walking up the first base line, he was yelling at Maholm, who yelled back.

The argument continued as Gomez slowly trotted across first base and began arguing with Freeman.

Freeman yelled back at Gomez, who touched second and third without incident before Braves catcher Brian McCann met him about 20 feet up the third-base line and stopped him.
