When Bruce Dreckman walked out on Guaranteed Rate Field for the White Sox-Yankees game Wednesday, he likely didn't expect to have a battle with a giant moth.

But that's exactly what happened in the ninth inning when the moth flew into the umpire's ear, which forced him to leave the game and get it pulled out.


Dreckman didn't seemed fazed by the winged creature getting stuck in his ear. He had help pulling it out and jogged back on the field.

Shockingly, the moth was still alive and was fluttering around.

Despite the short delay, the Yankees still thumped the White Sox, 7-3.

Aaron Judge injury update: Yankees star says fractured wrist ‘still healing’ .
Judge landed on the disabled list with the injury July 27 with an original timetable of three weeks. However, things have progressed more slowly than anticipated. He has participated in base running and defensive drills, but won’t handle a bat until he’s pain-free. The Yankees (78-46) have also played without Gary Sanchez (groin) since late July, and shortstop Didi Gregorious is in danger of joining him after suffering a bruised heel in Sunday’s win. Those three stars account for a combined 62 home runs and 177 RBIs.
