Flu Outbreak Grounds Beavers

Posted: Updated:

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - The San Diego Padres' Triple-A affiliate in Portland postponed a trip to Utah because of a flu outbreak that has affected seven players.

The Pacific Coast League says the Beavers asked to postpone Friday's game at Salt Lake because of the Influenza-A virus that has sickened several members of the club.

The PCL says none of the players has required hospitalization and the Beavers hoped to be able to travel in time for Saturday night's scheduled game at Utah.

The Beavers played in Reno on Thursday and were scheduled to open a four-game series Friday at Salt Lake.
