SCOTTSDALE, ARIZ. (AP) - The Diamondbacks’ field crew used a combination of cotton candy and lemonade to help disperse a swarm of bees that delayed the San Francisco Giants split squad’s 11-1 win over Arizona for 41 minutes in the second inning Sunday.

Ian Kennedy’s first spring training outing was cut short because of the delay with one out in the second. He threw 29 pitches and allowed one run and three hits in 1 1-3 innings.

In the top of the second inning, a swarm of several hundred bees began to gather in right field and then moved down the line toward first base. The grandstands just past the first base dugout were partially evacuated.

Giants starter, non-roster invitee Brian Burres, was also pulled after the delay. He allowed one hit in one inning.

Ryan Theriot, Hector Sanchez and Brett Pill all had three hits in San Francisco’s 21-hit barrage.
