A chartered plane carrying the Dodgers made an emergency landing at Los Angeles International Airport because of a mechanical issue, authorities said.

About 7:15 p.m., United Airlines Flight 2207 departed San Diego International Airport en route to Dallas, where the Dodgers face the Texas Rangers on Monday. But an unspecified mechanical issue forced the pilot to land in Los Angeles, LAX spokesman Nancy Castles said.

The plane, which had 176 passengers and crew onboard, safely landed at LAX about 8:16 p.m., United spokeswoman Mary Ryan said.
