Crawford Breaks It Up

Carl Crawford led off the seventh with a clean single through the first-second hole. Wakefield’s no-hit bid ended two innings shy of his longest string of no-hit innings against the Rays. On June 19, 2001, Wakefield through eight no-hit innings at the Trop. The no-hitter and the shutout were broken up that day by Randy Winn’s run-scoring single.
Crawford then stole second and slid awkwardly, appearing to either stretch his left quad or hyperextend his left knee. But I’m not a doctor, so my diagnosis from 200 feet away in the press box holds no water. C.C.‘s still in the game, so it couldn’t be that bad.
