OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - The Oakland Athletics dealt with another sewage problem Tuesday, this time in their dugout instead of the clubhouse area and nearby hallway.
Some players reported foul smells from the bathroom end of their dugout, while infielder Jemile Weeks said there was ``a good amount'' of water being cleaned out of the area during the team's 2-1 win against the Los Angeles Angels.
In June, a clogged pipe caused a sewage backup and flooding on the bottom floor of the ballpark that sent the Seattle Mariners and A's scrambling around in towels and heading for higher ground in the Oakland Raiders' locker room.
After a hazmat crew inspected the affected areas for E-coli, new carpeting and other work was done in the hallway between clubhouses, and cleanup in the umpires' room.
