The Chicago White Sox beat the Seattle Mariners 7-5 in a wild 16-inning affair on Wednesday. The game would make history for a couple of reasons, but ultimately it might be remembered most for Hawk Harrelson's call (or lack thereof) on Kyle Seager's 14th-inning grand slam. With the White Sox leading 5-1 in the bottom of the 14th, the Mariners' third baseman takes Chicago closer Addison Reed deep to tie the game at 5-5. The WGN play-by-play voice/unabashed homer, who just two weeks ago lost his composure on a blown call in extra innings, is his usual subjective self as he realizes what's unfolding. Harrelson is rendered speechless for a full forty seconds as he watches Seager's blast land in the seats. Is he too shocked to describe the moment? Is there something medically wrong? Maybe he's taking his most recent blow-up to heart and deciding to show some restraint? Whatever the reason, it's a par for the course for Harrelson and his long track record of homerism in the booth. Harrelson has given the silent treatment before, and this one clocks in at 40 seconds of dead air. After all of that, the White Sox actually won the game, thanks to a couple of runs in the top of the 16th. Just another day at the office for Harrelson and his broadcast partner, Steve Stone, who GQ once infamously dubbed the worst broadcast tandem in baseball.
