He wet! Longtime Chicago White Sox play-by-play man Hawk Harrelson accepted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge on Tuesday — you probably haven’t heard of this Ice Bucket Challenge thing yet, as it’s a brand new trend sweeping the Internet and our man Hawk is right on the pulse of things. Anyhow, Harrelson agreed to get doused with a big bucket of ice water (not one of those sissy-sized buckets Justin Verlander used ) and the result is a wonderful video full of Hawk absurdities.  A few of the things we absolutely love: 1. Hawk wears a shower cap, because he’s a respected broadcaster, darn it, and his hair is important. Sadly, it came off.  2. Jim Thome swoops in and nails Hawk with a second bucket of ice water while he’s still reeling from the first. Thome knows a simple truth: Hawk has The Will To Get Wet . 3. Hawk emerges from his double dousing doing some kind of Ric Flair-like strut (Wooooooo!) that quickly becomes the Chicken Dance. One more bucket and he would have been twerking, no doubt. Here’s a second look in Vine form that really captures the full Hawk-ness of this: Here’s hoping this becomes the next hottest dance craze in Chicago.

Jake Peavy finally ended a career-worst losing streak last week and gave the San Francisco Giants the kind of performance they wanted when they acquired him last month. The right-hander will seek to lift his potentially weary teammates with another strong outing, and the Giants look to add to Chicago Cubs right-hander Edwin Jackson’s struggles while ending a season-worst road skid Wednesday night. Peavy earned his first win in 19 starts and first in four games for the Giants last Wednesday with a 7-1 victory over the Chicago White Sox. The Giants landed the veteran from the Red Sox on July 26, and he went 0-3 with a 4.82 ERA in his first three starts with the club.

While the Toronto Blue Jays’ slide continues, the Milwaukee Brewers are working to again find some NL Central breathing room. The clubs meet Tuesday night at Miller Park with the Blue Jays in need of some competent pitching to end a discouraging August and the Brewers chasing a fifth straight victory. Milwaukee (70-55) returns home after sweeping three games against the Los Angeles Dodgers to conclude a 5-2 road stretch during which the staff posted a 2.21 ERA to cover for the lineup’s .214 average. Jonathan Lucroy went 2 for 5 with a home run and five RBIs in Sunday’s 7-2 win, while Carlos Gomez homered for a second straight game.

He was supposed to miss the rest of the season, but Avisail Garcia is back in the Chicago White Sox lineup and he’s already providing a noticeable presence. After Garcia tore the labrum in his left shoulder in April, he underwent surgery to repair it. The White Sox were told it might take up to six months to fully recover, but Garcia didn’t let it sink his spirits. “I always believed that,” said Garcia, who went 1-for-3 with a double Sunday in the White Sox’s 7-5 win against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Maybe the Colorado Rockies drew some energy, karma or just plain luck from watching Todd Helton have his No. 17 retired. After the ceremony Sunday, the Rockies then swept a split doubleheader, recording two come-from-behind wins over the Cincinnati Reds. “No. 17 must have worked his magic today,” Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. The Rockies won the second game 10-5, scoring five runs with two outs in the eighth inning, the first four on two-run doubles by Corey Dickerson and Michael Cuddyer.

Alone atop the AL West for the first time in three seasons, the Los Angeles Angels are not about to change the collective approach that brought them there. The visiting Angels look to maintain their focus while trying for a 10th straight victory over the Texas Rangers on Sunday. Albert Pujols and Howie Kendrick each homered, and Kole Calhoun continued his offensive tear with two hits and two RBIs as Los Angeles (72-49) won its fourth in a row with a second straight 5-4 victory Saturday. The win, coupled with Oakland’s fourth straight defeat Saturday against Atlanta, allowed the Angels to overtake the Athletics by two percentage points for the top spot in the AL West.

Mark Buehrle felt a little more nervous and a little more emotional than he thought he would. The pitcher received a standing ovation from the crowd as he took the mound against his former Chicago White Sox teammates. Buehrle tipped his cap and then allowed three runs in 5 1-3 innings in his first start as a visitor in Chicago and third game against the White Sox overall. The Toronto starter didn’t earn a decision, but the Blue Jays beat the White Sox 6-3 on Saturday night.

Dylan Axelrod has fared well in the minor leagues since joining the Cincinnati Reds’ organization and now he has another opportunity to show what he can do in the majors. He’ll make his club debut Saturday night when the visiting Reds and Colorado Rockies continue a four-game set. Cincinnati (61-61) announced Thursday that Homer Bailey, slated to start Saturday, is headed to the disabled list with a strained right elbow. I have a lot of confidence right now.” The right-hander has never faced Colorado, although he has experience against two of its hitters.

The scuffling San Francisco Giants are looking for any way to get back on track and avoid watching their playoff hopes fade away. A chance to face struggling Philadelphia Phillies starter Kyle Kendrick in their own park may give them just the opportunity they need. The Giants will try to earn just their second win in eight games Saturday and provide a rare bit of run support for Tim Hudson. San Francisco (63-58) looked like it was heading in the right direction after earning a 7-1 win over the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday and taking a 3-1 lead into the eighth inning of Friday’s opener against the Phillies (54-68).
