Some crazy stats from the White Sox-Athletics 14-inning game

Wednesday's White Sox-A's game lasted five hours and 48 minutes. 

It went 14 innings and the White Sox lost by a 12-11 final score in Oakland.

A lot happened, and some of what happened seems like forever ago.

Remember how Carson Fulmer started the game? Or that Yoan Moncada hit a grand slam in the second inning? How about when the White Sox had an early five-run lead?

Like we said, a lot happened.

The South Siders didn't come out on top, but there were some wild stats our NBC Sports Chicago stats guru Chris Kamka compiled.

The good news? The White Sox have a day off on Thursday.

Check out the sweet throwback jerseys that the White Sox will wear Tuesday night

The White Sox are going retro Tuesday night in Oakland Coliseum. 

With the A's celebrating 50 years of baseball in Oakland, the White Sox will don 1968 throwback uniforms to commemorate the anniversary. The A's will also wear throwback uniforms, and both are pretty sweet.

The throwback uniforms are only a small part of a larger celebration for Tuesday's game. Tickets for the game are completely free on a first-come, first-serve basis. Majority of the seats are general admission, excluding suites and the Diamond Level and Field Box sections.

Is Avi Time coming to an end on the South Side?

After posting career numbers in 2017, Avisail Garcia is already attracting trade suitors this offseason.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle's John Shea, the Oakland A's have interest in acquiring the outfielder, who would fill the team's need for a right-handed bat. 

The buzz should come as no surprise given Garcia produced a slash line of .330/.380/.506 in his breakout campaign, where he was also named the lone representative for the rebuilding Sox at the All-Star Game. 

Now the question centers on whether GM Rick Hahn, whose phone constantly stays buzzing, sees the 26-year-old as a piece for the future or trade bait. Heading into winter meetings, Hahn reiterated that he would listen to deals involving Garcia and Jose Abreu, especially considering the South Siders are likely still a few years away from seriously competing in the American League. 

With Garcia under club control until 2019 and his value at its peak, now may be the ideal time for Hahn to sell high and stockpile even more prospects for the already talent-rich farm system. The A's currently have four players in MLB Pipeline's Top 100

It may be Avi Time in Oakland.
