What We Learned: Carlos Gomez likes to smile

Why does Carlos Gomez like to smile? We discuss that and more in today's What We Learned.

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

If you've looked at many photos of Carlos Gomez, many of them tend to have one thing in common. Carlos Gomez is smiling in a lot of those pictures. Why is that? There hasn't been a lot to smile about this season, so why smile so much? Well, Carlos Gomez took a minute on Instagram yesterday to explain why he's always smiling. His reasoning is simple: You should always look on the bright side and remember that everything happens for a reason. A smile is a way to show strength in the tough times of life. It may not be much of a baseball story, but it's something to remember during some of the dark days that are happening in this losing season.

Yesterday's Results

Brewers 7, Phillies 4

It was bad Jimmy that made an appearance on Monday night, but the Brewers made sure that it wouldn't them this time. Despite allowing four runs in the first two innings, Jimmy limited the damage beyond that and allowed the Brewers to make their comeback. Jonathan Lucroy led the charge with four hits, two runs scored, and two RBI. Ryan Braun had three hits in the game as well.
