It was a crazy one in Seattle yesterday afternoon. The White Sox were in town and were on an eight-game losing streak until yesterday. It took them 16 innings to do it making history in the process. It was a close game at 0-0 until extra innings when the White Sox put up five runs in the 14th only to give up five in the bottom of the inning. Yep…Chicago couldn’t hold onto a 5-0 lead. Seattle’s Seager hit a grand slam to tie it. History.
Lucky for the White Sox, they were able to recover and score two more in the 16th and win the game. Talk about an exhausting game, but what a great way to end a losing streak.
White Sox second baseman Gordon Beckham talked to ESPN after the game: “We’re all too exhausted right now to relish it. But when you’re down, you’ve got an eight-game losing streak, and you’re battling and what happens in the 14th happened it’s like, ‘How can it get any worse?’ … We battled and hopefully it does enough for us to get going back in the right direction.”
