Spring training came to a smelly end Tuesday at Dodger Stadium, where a Freeway Series game between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Los Angeles Angels was halted early due to a sewage leak that flowed onto the field.
The teams came off the field in the bottom of the fifth inning as workers attempted to deal with the sewage the seeped along the third base line near the home dugout and into the first row of the stands. Following a 32-minute delay, the umpires declared the game over, with the Dodgers getting a 4-3 win.
"Crappy way to end the spring," Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling told the Los Angeles Times. "Get it?"
Dodgers president Stan Kasten said that city representatives were attempting to solve the problem. He added he wasn't worried about Dodger Stadium being ready for the season opener, Thursday against the rival San Francisco Giants.
Multiple media outlets reported that the sewage also reached the home coaches' room.
