Squirrel attacks are rare, but the Twins players weren’t taking any chances on Monday night.

During the Twins’ 6-4 loss to the Chicago White Sox at Target Field, a squirrel ran on the field and escaped into the Minnesota dugout, which the players clearly didn’t like.

It happened in the bottom of the first inning. With Nelson Cruz batting, the squirrel ran behind the plate, causing a delay. The rodent headed toward the dugout, squeezed under the mesh screen and the players jumped.

Miguel Sano wan’t taking any chances as he vacated the dugout.
