The Athletics defeated the Rangers 4-2 this afternoon to move into a flat-footed tie in the AL West, but they might be without their hottest hitter when the series continues on Tuesday.

According to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle, Coco Crisp left today’s game due to a right shin contusion. The injury occurred when he fouled a ball off his leg during an at-bat in the bottom of the sixth inning. The 33-year-old finished the at-bat and eventually struck out, but walked gingerly back to the dugout and didn’t return to play the field to begin the seventh inning. The severity of the issue isn’t yet known, as Athletics manager Bob Melvin told Slusser that he’ll be reevaluated when he gets to the ballpark tomorrow.

Crisp has been out of his mind recently, going deep seven times in his last 11 games. He homered in his third straight game today, giving him a career-high 17 home runs for the year.

      Coco: .258/.333/.424 17 HR, 17 SB

      Gardner: .273/342/413 8 HR, 22 SB
      Suzuki: .270/.304/.360 7 HR, 18 SB
      Wells: .243/.290/.369 11 HR, 5 SB

      Yeah, its a wonder he even has a job, much less a starting job, for one of the best teams in baseball.
