Pawtucket Red Sox Outfielder Jason Repko Makes An Incredible Over-The-Wall Catch (Video)
Things haven’t exactly been going well for the Boston Red Sox this season, as they currently find themselves 15 games back of the AL East-leading New York Yankees, thanks to an incredibly disappointing 62-74 record. However, the same cannot be said for their Triple-A affiliates, the Pawtucket Red Sox. You see, not only has Pawtucket already qualified for the International League playoffs with a 79-65 record, but they have also been treating their fans to some highlight-reel plays in the process.
The latest comes from 31-year-old outfielder Jason Repko, who flipped over the outfield wall and landed in the Pawtucket bullpen while robbing Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees outfielder Kosuke Fukudome of a grand slam on Sunday.

The Red Sox would go on to lose the game by a score of 6-2, but they’ll get another shot at the Yankees’ farm team when the two clubs face-off in a best-of-five International League semi-final playoff series, beginning Wednesday.
