Gomez was hit in the left earflap by a pitch from New York Mets rookie Noah Syndergaard on Sunday, but he played in the series opener at Detroit, and he began the game with a drive to left off Kyle Lobstein (3-4).
With the score tied at 2 and two outs in the seventh, Gomez singled up the middle to score Luis Sardinas from second. Jeremy Jeffress (1-0) earned the win.
Milwaukee's Jonathan Broxton worked through a jam in the eighth, and Francisco Rodriguez finished for his eighth save in as many chances.
