Chicago Cubs closer Hector Rondon got stuck in the bullpen bathroom for several minutes during Game 1 of the NL Division Series.

Joe Walsh, St. Louis’ director of stadium operations, said the latch froze during the latter innings of the Cardinals’ 4-0 win Friday night.

Walsh said city fire department officials had been on standby before personnel got the lock to function.

The team replaced the lock before Game 2 Saturday.
