Anthony Gose forgets how many outs there after catching fly ball, run scores from second base

Tigers center fielder Anthony Gose had a moment to forget in today’s game against the Blue Jays. I mean that literally, because he forgot how many outs there were after catching a fly ball in the fourth inning.

With Ryan Goins at second base, Josh Donaldson hit a fly ball to deep center field. The speedy Gose had some trouble picking it up initially, but he eventually caught up with it at the warning track for the out. He thought it was the end of the inning, so Goins was able to scamper all the way home. You can watch the play here.

Gose’s brain camp was embarrassing, but it doesn’t really matter much, as the Tigers are losing big to the Blue Jays. Brad Ausmus’ club appears poised to fall further back in last place in the AL Central.

PHILADELPHIA — The New York Mets have scratched two-time NL Cy Young Award winner Jacob deGrom from his start against the Phillies on Friday.

DeGrom says he has neck tightness, but “everything is fine structurally” and he doesn’t plan to go on the injury list. The right-hander felt soreness playing catch after his last start. He threw from the mound Thursday and thought he could still pitch the opener of a three-game series in Philadelphia but will skip the outing as a precaution.

DeGrom is 2-0 with a 2.45 ERA in four starts this season.
