Joe Kelly made his second start for the Red Sox last night after coming over from the Cardinals at the trade deadline, tossing six innings of two-run ball against the Reds.
He also went 1-for-2 at the plate and then did something on the bases that no Red Sox pitcher has done since 1969: Kelly stole a base.
And it was third base, too.
Kelly singled to center field off Mat Latos in the third inning, got bunted over to second base by Brock Holt, and then swiped third base without a throw while the unsuspecting Reds were walking Dustin Pedroia on four pitches.
The last Red Sox pitcher to steal a base? Bill Landis on September 8, 1969.
The last Red Sox pitcher to steal third base? Tom Brewer on July 30, 1959.
