SF Giants’ Brandon Crawford exits game vs. Braves with apparent injury

ATLANTA — The Giants won the replay review and scored a go-ahead run, but they may have lost something much larger.

On a sacrifice fly from Luis González in the fourth inning of their game Tuesday against the Braves, shortstop Brandon Crawford appeared to injure his left leg while scoring at home plate. Crawford was initially called out — and seemed to react late to there being a play at home plate at all — when Michael Harris II’s throw from center field beat him home.

Upon review, Crawford was called safe, giving the Giants a 6-5 lead.

But Crawford’s right leg appeared to get twisted while crossing home plate, then had his left leg caught under catcher Travis d’Arnaud’s shin guard. After spending a few minutes sitting on the dirt behind home plate, Crawford limped back to the dugout with a trainer, appearing to favor the right leg and shaking his left leg.

He was replaced at shortstop by Thairo Estrada, who slid over from second base. Wilmer Flores entered the game to take over at second.
