Birds and baseball haven’t been a good mix this month.

Five days after a bird was accidentally killed before an Arizona Diamondbacks-Oakland Athletics game, another one died during Monday’s game between the Cleveland Guardians and the Chicago White Sox.

Guardians outfielder Will Brennan hit a hard grounder to left field for a single during the second inning. But the ball hit a bird that was in the infield at Cleveland’s Progressive Field and killed it. A member of the grounds crew brought out a shovel and removed it.

“I truly am sorry @peta and bird enthusiasts,” Brennan tweeted after the Guardians’ 3-0 victory. “An unfortunate sacrifice.”

It was the second bird accidentally killed in an MLB stadium in less than a week.

Last Wednesday, Diamondbacks pitcher Zac Gallen was throwing during a warmup session in the outfield of Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum before the team’s afternoon game against the Athletics, because it was his off day. But during one of his pitches, a bird flew right through the path of the ball, and was hit midair.
