The spring training finale for the Dodgers and Angels was called off in the fifth inning on Tuesday night at Dodger Stadium for a stinky reason.

A sewage pipe reportedly burst, leaving the warning track dirt in foul territory down the third base line flooded and smelly.

There was a 32-minute delay as the Dodgers’ grounds crew tried to clean up the crappy situation, but they finally made the wise decision to call the exhibition game off.

And apparently the flooding even made its way into manager Dave Roberts’ office.

Dodgers outfielder Andrew Toles said, “I smelled it. It was nasty.”

Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling said, “Crappy way to end the spring.”

Another Dodgers player said, “I hope this doesn’t mean it’s gonna be a shitty year.”

And the Angels’ Twitter account brought out the poo emoji.

The leaking has apparently not stopped, but the Dodgers are confident they will have the situation under control before Thursday, when they host the Giants for Opening Day.
