Animal rights protesters delay Dodgers-Rockies game

LOS ANGELES (AP) The game between to the Colorado Rockies and Los Angeles Dodgers was interrupted Sunday with one out in the ninth inning when five fans clad in black tee shirts carrying black-and-white flags advocating animal rights raced onto the field.

All five reached the playing surface before being tackled by at least a dozen security guards, with two dancing next to the mound where Dodgers reliever Kenley Jansen stood before the protesters were hauled down. Players and umpires stood in their positions as the protest was contained. No player was threatened by the rush.

The game was held up for five minutes as the security force escorted the protesters off the field out through an opening in the center field.
