Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) - Milwaukee Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez left Sunday's contest versus the Atlanta Braves with a sprained left shoulder after making a spectacular leaping grab, robbing Braves shortstop Andrelton Simmons of extra bases.

In the fourth inning with the Brewers down 6-0, Gomez retreated to the wall in deep center, leaped and amazingly made the catch, but landed awkwardly towards the base of the wall and the warning track.

His shoulder appeared to jolt violently with the ground, while he fell and screamed in pain. Brewers training staff members greeted him in the outfield and helped him off the field.
