Giants shortstop Miguel Tejada ranged to his right and pulled up lame trying to field a ground ball in the third inning of Monday's game against the Dodgers.

Tejada, starting at short for the third straight game in place of a struggling Brandon Crawford, appeared to injure his groin or hamstring when Rafael Furcal's bouncer in the hole ate up his backhand.

After failing to get the force out at second, Tejada went to the ground in pain and quickly left the field grimacing following a brief visit with the trainer.

Crawford came off the bench to replace the 37-year-old, who struck out in his only at-bat.
