OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - A piece of the outfield wall in Oakland fell down after Los Angeles left fielder Shane Victorino crashed into it, causing a 10-minute delay as players briefly returned to their dugouts Monday night in a game between the Angels and Athletics.

Victorino was trying to chase down Danny Valencia’s RBI double in the bottom of the fifth inning. The piece that fell was a middle red panel of an advertising sign.

It was referred to as a broken fence delay on the television broadcast. Angels manager Mike Scioscia switched pitchers after the delay.

Only hours earlier, the stadium was transformed back to a baseball diamond after the Oakland Raiders hosted the Arizona Cardinals in an NFL preseason game Sunday night.

The A’s didn’t work out on the field beforehand during that process.
