• Crawford held out of lineup; Puig batting leadoff

    Summary of 4 articles · Updated Aug 24, 2013
    Yasiel Puig replaced Crawford in the leadoff spot against Red Sox left-hander Jon Lester. While Puig has struggled at the plate recently, those two hits included a tie-breaking home run on the first pitch he saw after coming off the bench on Tuesday in Miami and a double off the wall on Thursday. Washington Redskins punt returner Richard Crawford is out for the season with a left knee injury. Rookie Chris Thompson took over the punt return duties after Crawford left Saturday's game. Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said Crawford tore his lateral collateral ligament and possibly the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee on a three-yard punt return. He returned eight punts for 156 yards in 2012, including a 64-run return that set up the winning field goal in an overtime win over the Baltimore Ravens.
