Baseball players flee lightning strike

A massive thunder clap has sent major league baseball players scrambling for their lives during a game between Texas Rangers and Minnesota Twins in Arlington, Texas.

Players from both teams ran from the diamond during the fourth innings as a lightning strike hit just north of the stadium.

Minnesota base runner Josh Willingham went down on all fours, while first-base coach Jerry White hid behind the umpire.

"I thought I was a spirit - I thought I was dead," Rangers manager Ron Washington said.

Texas centre fielder Denard Span later tweeted: "That's the loudest noise I've ever heard. I thought Jesus was comin'!"

The game resumed after a safety delay, with Texas eventually winning 4-3 in 13 innings.
