Injured Allen Craig leaves game
Craig was chasing down a popup hit by Clint Barmes and collided with a padded railing down the first-base line, suffering what the team called a contusion to his right knee. He crumpled to the ground as the ball bounced away, and assistant trainer Barry Weinberg and manager Tony La Russa came out of the dugout to check on him.
First baseman Albert Pujols and Weinberg helped Craig to the dugout.
Jon Jay replaced Craig.
