The Chicago White Sox and Seattle Mariners played one wacky game at Safeco Field on Wednesday afternoon.

Final score: White Sox 7, Mariners 5 (16 innings).

Score after 13 innings: 0-0.

Score after 14 innings: 5-5.

Unreal: Kyle Seager's game-tying grand slam with two outs in the bottom of the 14th for the Mariners. Seager became the first major leaguer to tie a game in extra innings with a grand slam.

It was unfortunate for the White Sox, who were on an eight-game losing streak, but it was more unfortunate for this young fan in the bleachers. The idiot who plows the kid over shouldn't be allowed into a baseball game, again!

Now, back to some unique facts:

First time in MLB history: A team scored five runs or more in the 14th inning or later to tie a score, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

First time II: Both teams scored five-plus runs in a game after being held scoreless through nine innings, according to Elias.

Tying a mark: The 12 extra-inning runs by both teams matched an AL record.

Time: Five hours, 42 minutes.

Total pitches: 493 (245 through nine innings, 248 in extra innings).

Some people in Vegas probably weren't happy — and some likely were.

 

Would you believe? This wasn't the first time the Mariners hosted the White Sox and the two failed to score in the first 13 innings. On Aug. 12, 2009, Ken Griffey Jr. — who the season before played for the ChiSox — doubled in the winning run with two outs as Seattle claimed a 1-0 victory.

On Wednesday, the South Siders evened the score.
