LOS ANGELES (AP) — A chartered plane carrying the Dodgers made an emergency landing at Los Angeles International Airport because of a mechanical issue.

United Airlines Flight 2207 departed San Diego International Airport en route to Dallas Sunday night but an unspecified mechanical issue forced the pilot to land in Los Angeles, the Los Angeles Times reported.

United spokeswoman Mary Ryan says the plane had 176 passengers and crew onboard. The plan landed safely at LAX at about 8:16 p.m.

Team members were transferred to another plane and were able to depart for Dallas at a later time.

The Dodgers face the Texas Rangers Monday.
