Your browser does not support iframes. Jason Repko made one of the best catches we’ve seen this season. The Pawtucket Red Sox (Red Sox Triple-A) left fielder went over a fence on Sunday to rob Yankees first baseman Kosuke Fukudome of what would have been a grand slam. Fukudome was able to hit a home run later in the game, and his team won 6-2, so the robbed grand slam didn’t affect the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees, but it sure was awesome to watch. Repko has spent season in the majors with the Dodgers, Twins, and he went 1-for-11 in a five-game stint with the Red Sox in April. That wasn’t quite the best catch we’ve seen all year — this was — but it was certainly up there. Forearm bash to Hot Clicks
