PITTSBURGH, PA (WHBL) - Milwaukee outfielder Carlos Gomez says he'll appeal any suspension he gets from Major League Baseball.  Gomez refused to apologize for his role in Sunday's bench-clearing brawl during the Brewers' 14-inning win at Pittsburgh.  In the third, Gomez watched a long fly ball to center and started a home run trot, then sped around the bases after the ball hit the wall.  After Gomez slid head-first into third, Pirates starter Garrit Cole gave Gomez some words.  Gomez ran toward the pitcher as the dugouts and bullpens emptied.  Pittsburgh's Travis Snider tackled Gomez while the other players and coaches were wrestling and shoving.  Snider was cut in the face in a punch from Brewers' catcher Martin Maldonado.  Gomez, Snider, and Brewers' bench coach Jerry Narron were ejected.  Cole said batters have a right to watch homers, but not fly balls to center.  Gomez said some of the Pirate players have done the same thing - and his Brewer teammates never did anything. Gomez also said it was no different that what he's done for eight years in the Majors.
