Sox RP Hanrahan likes what he sees at Fenway

(Continued)

One of the most memorable moments in his career, Hanrahan said, was on June 25, 2011, at PNC Park. Hanrahan, who likes to feed off the crowd, struck out then-Red Sox first baseman Adrian Gonzalez with the Pirates leading by two runs and a runner on second to end the game. The Pirates won two of three games in that interleague series. Hanrahan saved both victories.

“Every strikeout, to me, is awesome,” he said. “In 2011, that was the time that the Pirates, everyone knew their history and we were right there in the middle of it. That was a big series for us. That kind of showed us that we could play with anybody at the time.

“So, I think that’s one of the things people remember.”

He hopes to create even more memories with his new team ... in his new park.
