Go to the video: Gose steals home

By Mike Harrington

The Bisons beat Norfolk, 6-4, Tuesday on Jim Negrych's two-out, two-run single in the seventh but the main talking point after this one was Anthony Gose's steal of home in the first. And he stole it easily.

(Midnight update: Gose's steal was No. 3 on ESPN SportsCenter's Top 10 plays!)

Corey Wimberly did that for the Bisons here on May 20, 2012 against Indianapolis but prior to that, Buffalo's last straight steal of home was by Chris Clapinski in 2004. So it's a pretty rare play -- and it's really rare to see it done so easily.

That's true even if Gose correctly pointed out afterward that doing it with red-hot Luis Jimenez at the plate might have been a little ill-advised. Fair enough. But it was a thrilling play with some great video from Check it out (click the symbol at the bottom right of the video box to make it full-screen for easier viewing)
