Bird on the field at Dodger Stadium steals show during Game 2 between Padres and Dodgers

While the Dodgers and Padres were locked in a tight battle during Game 2 of the National League Division Series, they had a very special fan join the proceedings.

As Los Angeles tried to rally from a 5-3 deficit in the bottom of the eighth inning with Gavin Lux at the plate, a duck (or a goose?) Appeared just outside the infield. With the wild animal likely confused and in the middle of the action, play was halted for a bit as stadium officials tried to figure out what to do.

Naturally, that’s understandable, as strange situations like this rarely happen, let alone in October playoff games:.

Eventually, the duck (or, again, goose?) Was safely corralled by workers at the stadium:.

Of course, even with the duck (or goose?) Safely off the field, MLB fans still couldn’t quite make sense of what the animal actually was in the heat of the moment. Duck, duck … Goose?
