#6: Carlos Gomez, August 6 vs. San Francisco Giants

Carlos Gomez likes to hit home runs in the first inning. Seven of his twenty-three home runs in 2014 were hit in the first inning. His home runs had an average distance of 421 feet, and his shortest first-inning home run was 394 feet. His longest first-inning home run came on this day. Once again, it was a leadoff home run. Facing Ryan Vogelsong to start the game, he hit one out on the fourth pitch.

That home run landed on the concourse beyond the Friday's seats, measuring at 443 feet. It left the bat at 110.2 MPH, and Carlos Gomez was probably halfway around the bases by the time it landed. It was also the longest home run hit by a Brewers player at Miller Park this season. The five longest home runs hit by the Brewers all came on the road, and those are coming up.
