Sewage pipe break brings ends to Dodgers game

- Tuesday night's Los Angeles Dodgers-Los Angeles Angels Freeway Series exhibition game at Dodger Stadium was called in the bottom of the fifth inning because of a broken pipe that caused flooding in part of foul territory.

A pool of water made its way onto the warning track near the third- base camera well and into the stands.

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

The game was called after about a half-hour delay with the Dodgers leading the finale of the three-game series, 4-3.

"There is still water seeping up through a leak somewhere onto the field," Dodger President Stan Kasten said. ``Since that is the case, it didn't make any sense to wait for that to end."

Because the Angels batted five times, the game is official.

The Dodgers are scheduled to open the regular season Thursday against the San Francisco Giants at Dodger Stadium.
