Los Angeles Dodgers' Carl Crawford (25) comes up lame after hitting a double with Colorado Rockies' DJ LeMahieu (9) looking on during the third inning of the MLB National League baseball game Saturday June 1, 2013 in Denver.


Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Carl Crawford has left Saturday's game against the Colorado Rockies because of a left hamstring injury.

Crawford was injured legging out a double in the third inning. A trainer came out to second base and immediately escorted Crawford to the dugout. The Dodgers later described the injury as a cramp in the hamstring.

Crawford was replaced by Scott Van Slyke, who stayed in the game to play left field.

Crawford doubled in both of his at-bats against Rockies starter Jhoulys Chacin. He is hitting .301 with five home runs and 13 RBIs in 51 games this season.
