Carlos Gomez Steals Go-Ahead Home Run On Leaping Catch For Final Out

This is a pretty impressive way to end a baseball game. With two out in the top of the ninth and closer Francisco Rodriguez on the mound for the Brewers, Joey Votto sends K-Rod's 2-2 offering deep to center field for what looked to be a two-run home run that would give the Reds a 5-4 lead.

Instead, Carlos Gomez waited at the wall and made a great leaping catch, saving two runs and recording the final out of the game. Rodriguez couldn't believe it and Votto really couldn't believe. Hell, Carlos Gomez could barely believe it and he had the ball in his glove.
