Three weeks after a bird of prey stole the show, a squirrel briefly interrupted play in the top of the fourth inning of the Yankees-Twins game. The squirrel streaked onto the field and charged Twins third baseman Brendan Harris before seeking protection from the rain under the outfield wall.

Here's what it looked like on TV.

The squirrel remained on the field as play resumed, running the entirety of the warning track looking for a way out as the crowd chanted "Let's go squirrel!"

Here's a view from the Target Field stands, which begins with Brendan Harris' leap to get out of the way.

Earlier this season, an American Kestrel captivated Twins fans, long accustomed to watching games indoors, by swooping across Target Field, grabbing a moth and devouring it atop the right field foul pole.
