This is only a guess. Don Drysdale did quite a few games for ABC back then (Monday Night Baseball). The Sox also had Lorn Brown to do fill-in work on the radio side. On the nights that Drysdale worked for the network, they may have moved McConnell (and sometimes Wynn) to the tv side, giving Hawk the night off, and allowing Lorn Brown to do the radio call on his own (or with Wynn). It would be interesting to look up the dates of those two 1983 games and see if they fell on Monday nights.
