Wednesday night’s game against the Padres wasn’t always pretty for the Dodgers. But there were some wild moments within the loss. One moment that caught the baseball world by storm was for the birds.
Or in this case, a goose.

A wild goose showed up on the field in the 8th inning, much to the enjoyment of fans at the ballpark and online.

The Los Angeles Audubon — an organization dedicated to the conservation of birds and their habitats — even informed the public on the goose friend on the field.
The bird at the @Dodgers game was a Greater White-Fronted Goose. Bright lights can disorient birds that migrate at night, which this species does. Learn more here: https://t.co/NqRvzFZz63 pic.twitter.com/rz4Wnm9BtC

Folks watching the game at home might have missed the excitement that came when stadium workers attempted to capture and usher the bird from the field during a pitching change. Our friend Michael Duarte caught the action from the press box.

Speaking of gooses, Dave Roberts after the game announced that Tony Gonsolin would be starting game 3 for the Dodgers in San Diego. Tony’s handle on social media is “goose.”
No word on whether Dave was inspired by the on-field visitor on Wednesday.
First pitch for game three is set for 5:37 PM PT on Friday night.
