Dodger Stadium Blackout Pics and Videos: A Beautiful, Distracting Setup on Social Media

For the second time this season, Dodger Stadium experienced a power outage in the bottom of the 12th inning. The Dodgers had Matt Kemp on 2nd, one out and Justin Turner up to bat then poof, out goes the lights.

With the Arizona Diamond backs losing the Mariners, Clayton Kershaw going 8 innings to avoid using the bullpen and Kenley Jansen allowing another homerun in the top of the 9th, the blackout completed what turned out to be quite an amazing night of baseball for fans at Chavez Ravine.

Dave Lanzarin was able to capture the moment on twitter:


The Los Angeles Department of water released a statement that the delay was mainly due to the stadium equipment to reset, as they have a backup source any time power is disrupted at the stadium.

Dodgers broadcaster, Joe Davis, took the time to do a quick live video for everyone was blacked out on television via Spectrum or the MLB App.

It would be fair to note that local radio host and Dodgers beat writer, David Vasseigh has made quite a name for himself amongst Chicago Cubs fans when the lights at Wrigley Field suffered from the same issues earlier this season.

The Dodgers have had two power outages since his tweets and we might as well include the fun sewage spill before opening day to this year’s infrastructure embarrassments.

The good news is that on the first pitch after the lights came back on, Justin Turner, dropped the ball into shallow right field, just fair and Matt Kemp ran in for the game-winning run and the Dodgers were able to get a game on the Diamondbacks in the standings.

Is this the spark the Dodgers needed?
