SEATTLE (TheBlaze/AP) — Kyle Seager’s first career grand slam was a historic one and gave Seattle a chance for an improbable victory. It also was one of the only clutch hits for the Mariners during a frustrating loss.
But distracting from Seager’s game-tying grand slam was a man who plowed through a small child to try and grab the ball.
Seager’s drive in the 14th inning capped a remarkable five-run rally, but the Chicago White Sox got RBI singles from Alejandro De Aza and Alex Rios two innings later and held on for a 7-5 victory on Wednesday.
According to the Mariners, with information from Elias Sports Bureau, Seager became the first player to hit a tying grand slam in extra innings, and no team had ever scored five or more runs in the 14th inning or later to tie a game. It also was the first game in major league history when each team scored five or more runs in the game when it was scoreless through the ninth.
