Swarm Of Bees Causes Delay In Diamondbacks-Giants Spring Training Game

The Arizona Diamondbacks' spring training matchup with the San Francisco Giants today was delayed for 41 minutes -- but not because of rain. A swarm of bees caused a stoppage in play, according to MLB.com.

The bees congregated at the end of the Giants' first-base dugout at Salt River Fields in Scottsdale, Ariz. The game was stopped so that the grounds crew and local fire officials could work to get rid of the pests.

Diamondbacks ace Ian Kennedy was on the mound at the time of the delay, facing Freddy Sanchez with no score and one out in the top of the second.

The D-Backs elected not to put Kennedy back on the mound after the delay; Barry Enright took the mound when play finally resumed.
