Coco Crisp exits Wild Card Game with hamstring injury

1 Comment

Coco Crisp had to be removed from Tuesday night’s American League Wild Card Game before the bottom of the 11th inning with an apparent hamstring injury.

Crisp struck out in the top of the 11th inning and then jogged out toward his position in center field, but he promptly called for a replacement and limped back into the A’s dugout. Jonny Gomes entered to play left field and Sam Fuld shifted from left to center.

Crisp, who’s been bothered by hamstring injuries at various points throughout his career, finished 2-for-6 with an RBI and a run. He struck out three times.

This loser-goes-home tilt remains tied 7-7 heading into the top of the 12th inning.
