Dodgers' Crawford leaves game with hamstring tightness

PHOENIX (AP) Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Carl Crawford was removed from Saturday's game at the Arizona Diamondbacks with right hamstring tightness.

Crawford was lifted for a pinch hitter in the top of the fifth inning. He was 1 for 3 with a home run and two strikeouts up to that point.

Scott Schebler replaced Crawford in left field. Crawford missed 75 games earlier this season and was on the 60-day disabled list with a strained right oblique, returning to action on July 21.

His status is day to day, the Dodgers said.
