Jason Repko flips over wall to rob Kosuke Fukudome of a grand slam (Video)

The big-league team has lost seven straight games, but not everything in Red Sox Nation is all bad these days. Pawtucket Red Sox farmhand Jason Repko turned in a candidate for best catch of the year with an amazing catch that ended with him flipping over the wall to rob Scranton/Wilkes-Barre's Kosuke Fukudome of a grand slam.

The play landed Repko — a 31-year-old outfielder who has spent parts of seven seasons with the Dodgers, Twins and Red Sox — on every highlight reel and oodles of baseball blogs.

Repko's reaction to the play, however, was somewhat tempered. Not only did the tumble leave him with a big cut on his arm, but it also came during Pawtucket's 6-2 loss to the Yankees.

From ESPNBoston:

"It definitely felt good, but we still lost," Repko said Monday morning. "I want to be happy about it, but you can't be because you lost and you still feel down about the game. All in all, when I got home and saw it on TV, I was like, 'that was kind of cool.' I enjoyed it, and to see it [on 'SportsCenter'] was cool."

At this point in the season, though, it has to be all about the little things for Red Sox Nation. Not that Repko's robbery was a small thing. It was really just flat-out awesome.
