The leak was caused by a water main break, and left a stinky, brown pool near the Dodgers' dugout down the third base line in foul territory.

The sewage pipe reportedly burst in the bottom of the fifth inning when the Dodgers were 4-3 up. The clubhouse did not appear affected, but several Dodgers said the liquid spilled into the coaches' room and the video room.

The Los Angeles Dodgers ended up losing to the Houston Astros in the 2017 World Series and they want another chance at the title.

The smell of sewage was in the air, according to Southern California News Group reporter J.P. Hoornstra.


"I'm not going to tell you what it really was", Dodgers outfielder Andrew Toles said. "That's messed up. It's nasty".

While we wait for Stripling to dumb that joke down a bit, Dodgers President Stan Kasten explained that team officials are still trying to figure out what exactly went wrong at the 56-year-old stadium.

Because the losing team had at least five chances to bat, the final score and statistics will count as an official game in spring training records. "We don't know where the backup was or what caused it other than a main pipe here and a main pipe outside the stadium". I thought it was Gatorade or something coming from the stands. "It's unfortunate. We're all winding down spring training".

It's MLB Opening Day and it's time to kick off the 2018 season with the San Francisco Giants facing off against National League West Division rival Los Angeles Dodgers.
