SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - San Francisco Giants shortstop Miguel Tejada has left Monday night’s game against the Los Angeles Dodgers because of a lower abdominal strain.

Tejada attempted to field Rafael Furcal’s sharp grounder in the third inning, but bobbled it for an error and then slid to the turf.

A trainer came out to check on Tejada, along with San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy, and the three walked off the field together.

Tejada, who was replaced by rookie Brandon Crawford, struck out in his only at-bat against Chad Billingsley.
