Jays’ Gose steals one from Sox

Former Fisher Cats All-Star Anthony Gose stole second, third and home to beat the Red Sox, 3-2, at JetBlue Park in Fort Myers on Thursday, lifting the Blue Jays to a franchise-record 22nd win of the spring. Gose, who stole 70 bases for Double-A New Hampshire last season, caught the Red Sox sleeping as catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia lobbed the ball back to pitcher Justin Thomas in the eighth inning.

Gose, slated to begin the year at Triple-A Las Vegas, drew a walk off Thomas and eventually scored with two outs, stealing his fourth base of the game. Toronto starting pitcher Drew Hutchison, who will likely lead New Hampshire’s rotation beginning next week, pitched four innings and held the Red Sox to four hits and one run. The 21-year-old Gose leads the Blue Jays with seven stolen bases in the Grapefruit League.

“I never saw anybody steal second, third and home in the same inning in my career,” Blue Jays manager John Farrell told mlb.com. “He is obviously exciting. He can take over on the basepaths. He has a combination of pure speed, plus the ability to read some things. You just turn him loose. He’s a pure basestealer.”

Boston starter Alfredo Aceves looked strong, allowing only three hits and one earned run through six innings. David Ortiz honored and Ryan Sweeney drove in a run for the Sox.
