You’ve heard of angels in the outfield but what about geese?

A third animal entered Sunday’s competition between the Cubs and Diamondbacks when a goose landed on the field behind Cubs center fielder Rafael Ortega in the second inning.

The rogue goose remained out there through the bottom of the second where the D-backs’ Ketel Marte kept his distance.

Manager Torey Lovullo said he’d be keeping an eye on the extra addition to the field.
