After finishing their series in San Diego with an extra-innings win over the Padres, the Los Angeles Dodgers headed to the airport, scheduled to fly to Texas for a two-game series with the Rangers.

However, shortly after takeoff the plane was diverted to LAX. Brett Anderson was one of the first in the traveling party to tweet about the situation:

Soon after, Time Warner Cable SportsNet LA’s Alanna Rizzo provided more details:

Despite knowing he would not go to bed until the early morning hours, A.J. Ellis joked about the plane issues on his Twitter account:

After a two-hour delay, the team boarded a new plane and headed to Texas, landing shortly after 3:00 a.m. CT:

This plane mishap could not come at a worse time for the Dodgers as they do not have another off day until July 2. During that strech, the team will be on flights to Los Angeles, Chicago, Florida, Arizona, and back to Los Angeles. The Dodgers and Rangers begin a two-game series Monday at 5:05 p.m. PT.
