Audio: Reds broadcast goes silent on Jonathan Lucroy's walk-off homer


Reds television broadcasters Jim Kelch and Chris Welsh definitely did not expect to see what they saw at Miller Park on Friday night when Jonathan Lucroy smacked a two-run walk-off home run off dominant Reds closer Aroldis Chapman. How else can you explain the deathly silence from them immediately following Lucroy's decisive swing?

Take a listen and hear for yourself...




For those of you keeping score at home, there was about 45 seconds of silence in the Cincinnati booth from the time the pitch was delivered and the time Kelch finally snapped back to reality and spoke into the microphone.

The loss snapped the Reds' modest five-game winning streak, too.

  2. Ihad gone into the kitchen and was making my way back to the TV when I heard the fireworks. I said to myself "Chapmans blown another save with a walk off! Why did Dusty use him 5 games in a row???"

  3. More insight, knowledge, and general information given along with a much needed break for my ears bleeding from listening to their broadcasters in that 45 seconds then was givin the entire game. At least was spared the torture of listening to "the cowboy" Brantley. Should use his recordings at GITMO. Worst torture ever? Listening to him non stop
