Dodgers OF Crawford leaves game vs. Rockies with hamstring injury

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.
