Police are investigating a fight outside Dodger Stadium Friday night, in which one fan sustained critical injuries, reports the Associated Press.

The Dodgers hosted the New York Mets in Los Angeles on Friday for Game 1 of the National League Division Series. The Dodgers lost the game 3–1, and are down in the series 1–2.

Officer Matthew Ludwig said the physical altercation escalated from an argument between fans, though he was not sure if they were from rival teams. Los Angeles police are still searching for the people involved in the fight.

The injured fan remained hospitalized on Monday in critical but stable condition, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Security was increased at Dodger Stadium after a 2011 fight drew national scrutiny. San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow was attacked by two men on Opening Day 2011 and left with permanent brain damage. The men eventually pleaded guilty and were sent to federal prison.

The Dodgers will play the Mets at Citi Field for Game 4 on Tuesday. A Dodgers victory would force a Game 5 back in Los Angeles.
