For the second time in recent weeks, a power outage hit Dodger Stadium, interrupting a game against the San Diego Padres Saturday night.


The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power mentioned an automatic switch that may have been a factor. The department tweeted: "When the automatic switch engages it reroutes power to the stadium within 2 seconds, but equipment inside stadium takes time to reset, including high intensity lights."


Lights appeared to be back on within minutes, and the Dodgers were able to end the game with a 5-4 win shortly afterward.



The outage comes just 30 days after another similar incident at the stadium. In the first outage, the power was out for 23 minutes.
