LOS ANGELES — Giants manager Bruce Bochy expressed optimism regarding the condition of shortstop Brandon Crawford, who was removed for precautionary reasons after colliding with left fielder Gorkys Hernandez in Monday’s 5-2 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Crawford, who was inadvertently kneed in the face by Hernandez as they pursued Clayton Kershaw‘s fourth-inning popup, underwent the standard concussion protocol and will be re-evaluated Tuesday.

LOS ANGELES — Giants manager Bruce Bochy expressed optimism regarding the condition of shortstop Brandon Crawford, who was removed for precautionary reasons after colliding with left fielder Gorkys Hernandez in Monday’s 5-2 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers.

“Right now, it looks pretty good,” Bochy said. “I’ll say that.”

Crawford and Hernandez slammed into each other as they pursued Kershaw’s shallow fly, which fell for an RBI double. The force of the impact knocked both Giants to the ground as Los Angeles’ Austin Barnes took off from first base to score the game’s first run. Crawford recovered enough to toss the ball to Evan Longoria to retire Kershaw trying to advance to third.

“Both of them were busting their tail to make a play,” Bochy said.

Crawford batted for himself in the fifth, but flied out and was replaced by Alen Hanson.

Hernandez jammed his left wrist as he tried to brace himself but remained in the game and contributed an RBI single to San Francisco’s four-run, ninth-inning rally.
