Minor league baseball game interrupted by runaway sheep

Here’s a very minor league baseball sentence: During Thursday night’s State College Spikes-Batavia Muckdogs game, one of the sheep from the monkey rodeo act got loose and caused a two-minute delay.

Sure, that’s pretty fun. But it would have been better if it had happened during a Hartford Yard Goats game.
