Mahay, Mahay

KANSAS CITY – Ron Mahay just showed why he was coveted by the Red Sox at the trade deadline – he struck out Jason Varitek with two on and two out in the eighth to escape a jam and maintain a 4-2 lead for the Sox.

Mahay, a former Red Sox replacement player center-fielder, is quite an athlete. Before the game in 100-degree conditions, Mahay ran several times from foul pole to pole. Pretty impressive.
