Aaron Hicks' Insane Home Run-Robbing Catch Draws Hat Tip from Carlos Gomez

Aaron Hicks just keeps on shattering the dreams of hopeful home run hitters around Major League Baseball.

While the White Sox's Adam Dunn is still recovering from the night Aaron Hicks robbed the slugger of a big fly back in mid-May, the Brewers' Carlos Gomez suffered the same fate on Tuesday night.

Hicks scaled the wall in left-center field with a perfectly timed jump, and a second later was on his back listening to the reaction of a stunned crowd. At the time, the catch preserved a 2-0 lead for the Twins in the bottom of the second.

Gomez, a speedy outfielder who enjoys stealing hits away from opponents in his own right, couldn't help but appreciate the play. He even went as far as to tip his cap in the direction of Hicks:

Oddly enough, Hicks has also hit his own homer in each of these games, which is nothing short of rubbing salt in the wounds of his frustrated opponents.

If chicks dig the long ball then there are women all over Milwaukee with arms folded and pouts on their faces.

A few folks on social media paid homage to Torii Hunter's robbery of Barry Bonds in the 2002 MLB All-Star game in the same stadium. I wouldn't quite take it that far, but it's one heck of a catch.

No one would ever confuse Hicks of being a top-notch MLB player, but he certainly seems to have a flair for the dramatic. Stay tuned, baseball fans, because you may not have seen the last of his wall-climbing talents.
