Did you see that catch Repko made?

While highlights from a Red Sox season of lows are few and far between, there was an amazing play that may have been the catch of the year down on the farm in Pawtucket on Sunday night.

Jason Repko, the 31-year-old minor league journeyman who has spent time with the Dodgers, Twins, and Red Sox, robbed Scranton/Wilkes-Barre's Kosuke Fukodome of a grand slam when he sprinted to the left field warning track to make a tremendous leaping catch that carried him over the outfield wall at McCoy Stadium.

"It definitely felt good, but we still lost. I want to be happy about it, but you canít be because you lost and you still feel down about the game," Repko said on Monday, via ESPNBoston.com. "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."

On the downside, Repko suffered a gash on his arm during the play, and the PawSox went on to lose to the Yankees's Triple-A affiliate, 6-2.
