Reds game delayed on account of ... bees?

Pablo Sandoval accomplished a rare feat on Monday.

A view of bees swarming the home plate camera prior to the game between the San Francisco Giants and the Cincinnati Reds at Great American Ball Park.

Former Red Sox pitcher Drew Pomeranz got the start for the Giants, but gave up seven earned runs in just an inning and two-thirds. His home run Monday was a three-run shot in the sixth inning that cut the Giants' deficit at the time to 7-4.

Sandoval, however, is known for having home run power. Sandoval hit the first batter he faced, Jose Peraza, but induced a flyout and a 6-4-3 double play ground out to end the inning and keep his career ERA at 0.00. Winker and Dietrich followed with first-pitch drives to right-center, Dietrich turning his entire body to stare into the Reds dugout as he danced up the first base line after his fourth home run in three games. "Tough loss, but whatever I can do to help this team, I want to take that punch and sacrifice everything to help the bullpen".

"It was fun", Sandoval said after the game, per MLB.com. All he did was pitch a ideal 1-2-3 inning, forcing a groundout to second and two groundouts to shortstop.

The bees eventually moved across the field and into the stands, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer, causing fans to retreat toward the top levels of the upper deck and lower concourse.
