The Milwaukee Brewers were down 8-1 to the St. Louis Cardinals in the bottom of the fifth inning on Saturday, and Carlos Gomez fell victim to an Adam Wainwright breaking ball, striking out to end the inning.
Naturally, Gomez was upset with his bat and tried to take out his frustrations, but it didn't work out like he planned. He went to break his bat not once, but three times—and failed.
You've got to give credit to Gomez for not giving up right away, but he finally settled for the bat-and-helmet slam as he headed back to the dugout. Nothing seemed to go Gomez's or the Brewers' way, as the Cardinals rolled to a 10-2 victory, extending Milwaukee's losing streak to seven games.
Maybe next time, Carlos.
