Former Fisher Cats outfielder Anthony Gose had a weekend to remember at Fenway Park. The Blue Jays outfielder shined as his team took three straight from the Red Sox, playing a pivotal role in each win.
Gose's busy weekend began as a pinch runner on Friday night. Two pitches later, he was standing at third with a pair of stolen bases. The Jays would go on to win that game 7-5.
On Saturday, Gose turned in his best single-game performance in the major leagues. His two-run single was the highlight of the Jays' five-run second inning. Later in the game, his first major league home run - a three-run blast to right field - put the game out of reach in the Jays' favor. All told, he went 2-4 with a home run, a career-high five RBI, and another stolen base in the 9-2 win.
The Blue Jays capped the series with a come-from-behind 4-3 win on Sunday afternoon. Gose went 2-4 and picked up a single in the tie-breaking rally in the ninth.
Gose finished the weekend set with four hits, 5 RBI, and 4 stolen bases. He has had six hits in his last 4 games, raising his average to .223. Gose has also stolen 14 bases in just 33 games in the major leagues.
