This game started at 12:40 p.m. local time at Seattle’s Safeco Field. A full five hours and 42 minutes later, it finally reached a conclusion.
The score was tied 0-0 until the top of the 14th inning, when the White Sox rallied for five runs against Mariners relievers Hector Noesi and Danny Farquhar. Seattle marched back in the bottom of that frame, though, plugging away with four singles and setting up this heroic (and historic) game-tying grand slam from third baseman Kyle Seager:
But baseball is baseball and the White Sox plated two runs in the 16th inning to win it for good.
Seager, 25, has an .827 OPS in 58 games this year and he’s on pace for 22 homers, 49 doubles and 76 RBI.
