Brewers' Gomez leaves game after crashing into seats

ST. LOUIS (AP) Milwaukee third baseman Hector Gomez crashed into the stands behind third and left the game against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Gomez was trying to catch a foul ball hit by Jason Heyward in the sixth inning on Wednesday. Gomez hit the short wall at full speed and fell head-first into the seats. After being looked at, he left the game under his own power.

A Brewers spokesman says Gomez was examined by a doctor for a possible concussion and the results were negative.

Hernan Perez moved from second base to third and Luis Sardinas came in to play second.
