LOS ANGELES (AP) - A bunch of skunks at Dodger Stadium nearly caused a real stink for the St. Louis Cardinals.

Four skunks found their way into the crevices of the Cardinals’ dugout before a 2-1 win over Los Angeles on Friday night.

Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said stadium workers came over with a cage and bag, but didn’t catch the varmints.

“I told everybody at the beginning: ‘Don’t be fooling around over there, because you’ll wish you hadn’t,’” Matheny said.

“After that, it was like they were never there. It wasn’t anything different than usual, except for the knowledge of knowing that they were under there. Apparently, they might still be in there,” he said.

The Cardinals have had critters of their own in the past. Several years ago, a squirrel darted across home plate during a playoff game at Busch Stadium.
