Oakland’s Crisp out of lineup with calf injury

- Associated Press - Sunday, August 7, 2011

ST. PETERSBURG, FLA. (AP) - Oakland Athletics center fielder Coco Crisp was out of the starting lineup with a right calf injury one day after stealing a career-high four bases.

Crisp was replaced by Ryan Sweeney in Sunday's game against Tampa Bay.

Oakland manager Bob Melvin said Crisp should return for the start of a three-game series at Toronto on Tuesday night.

The four steals by Crisp in Saturday night's 8-0 win over the Rays was one off the Oakland record held by Bert Campaneris (1976) and Rickey Henderson (1989).

Also, first baseman Conor Jackson didn't start for the second consecutive game because of back spasms.
