Chase Utley scrambles away from a squirrel that jumped into the Phillies dugout Friday night.

It looks like the St. Louis Cardinals brought another mascot with them to Citizens Bank Park Friday night: the Rally Squirrel.

A gray squirrel stole the show at the game by climbing up the protective net behind home plate before taking a jump to the top of the Phillies dugout more than 10 feet below. The furry rodent then leapt into the dugout sending players like Chase Utley scurrying.

The Cardinals are known to be friendly with gray squirrels after one ran across home plate during the 2011 National League Division game against the Phillies in St. Louis. The Phils went on to lose the series.
