The Los Angeles Dodgers welcomed the Milwaukee Brewers to town Friday night for the opener in a final three-game series of the first half of the 2015 season. The matchup was one dominated by Brewers right-hander Jimmy Nelson, who no-hit the Dodgers through 5.1 innings.

Nelson was spotted a 2-0 lead in the fifth inning, with the Brewers capitalizing on two Mike Bolsinger wild pitches. However, before that unfolded there was a playful exchange between Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez and Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig as Milwaukee was coming off the field after the fourth.

Gomez was running toward the dugout with Gerardo Parra, a Dodgers nemesis, when he spotted Puig making his way toward right field and appeared to say something to Parra. Gomez eyed Puig for a few footsteps before removing a big piece of gum from his mouth and throwing it at the Dodgers outfielder.

Puig took it in stride as he spun to try and avoid the wad heading in his direction before continuing on to the outfield.
