The power went out at Dodger Stadium Saturday night at approximately 9:40 p.m., as the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres were involved in an extra innings game.
The game was tied at 4-4 in the bottom of the 12th inning when the stadium went dark.
Saturday was the second time in 30 days that the iconic stadium has lost power during a game. The previous outage was caused by a Mylar balloon, per the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power.
The official LADWP Twitter account sent out a note for Saturday's outage stating, "Circuit outage on line supplying power to @Dodger Stadium caused brief interruption in power flow. Power was restored within seconds. Stadium equipment takes time for facilities personnel to reset."
The Dodgers also issued a statement after the game:
"The delay in tonight's game was caused by a disruption in the city's power feed to the facility. Once fixed, the stadium lights came back on and the game resumed after a 20 minute delay."
The lights were back on and players were ready to go at approximately 10:00 p.m.
With the fresh new light, Justin Turner seemed to finally be able to see that the Dodgers were facing the last place Padres. With his new found visibility, Turner only required one pitch to end the game with a walkoff double.
