White Sox Blow Lead In Ninth; Hawk Harrelson Goes Silent

This isn't a new reaction from Hawk, but it's still fun. With a man on second and two outs in the ninth, the White Sox coughed up a one-run lead against the Mets Tuesday night, sending Hawk spiraling down to the bad place.


Daniel Murphy popped up the first pitch he saw for what looked like an easy third out. But for some reason, Gordon Beckham was hauling ass to the spot where Conor Gillaspie had already set up, tripped over Addison Reed and crashed into Gillaspie at roughly the same time the ball arrived. It fell softly to ground. David Wright, running on contact, scored easily.

Tie game. Low, guttural noises from Hawk.* Silence. Nonsensical murmuring. A half-hearted update on the count and then "You have got to be KIDDING ME" into the break.


Hawk was all smiles in the home-half, however, when the Sox walked-off on Alexei Ramirez's single to left.
