Goose on the field at Dodger Stadium during the NLDS.

Game 2 of the NLDS series between the San Diego Padres and Los Angeles Dodgers featured a brief pause in action on Wednesday night at Dodger Stadium, for an unusual reason.

A goose — not a duck, but it fooled many of us initially (including FS1 announcers Adam Amin and A.J. Pierzynski) — was in the outfield during the bottom of the eighth inning.

The Dodger Stadium grounds crew removed the goose from the field.

This entertaining postseason baseball game has had a bit of everything, and the goose appearance certainly took things to another level.

Here’s a look at how baseball fans have reacted to the goose on the field:

As for the game, the Padres came away with a 5-3 victory over the Dodgers to even up the NLDS 1-1.

The best-of-five series now heads south to San Diego for Games 3 and 4. Don’t be surprised if there are more animals on hand for those games at Petco Park.
