LOS ANGELES (AP) — Perhaps the only thing that could slow the Cincinnati Reds relievers in this five-game win streak was a raccoon in the bullpen on Sunday.
A raccoon at Dodger Stadium was found by a member of the cleaning crew in the visitor’s bullpen. Animal Control was called and by about 2½ hours before game time, an employee trapped the raccoon in a cage and took the critter away.

Many of the Reds players hadn’t arrived on their team bus from Pasadena while the raccoon wrapped himself around a bar in the bullpen.
