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.
