"It was perfect," manager Don Mattingly said with a laugh. "It was the icing for our trip."
The truck breaking down, coupled with weight and computer issues, delayed the team from leaving San Francisco at its scheduled departure time.
Now at home, Mattingly is excited to be off the road and back in familiar territory.
"That trip didn't do real good for us," he said. "It's always nice to get home and change the scenery. We'll see what happens."
