A’s center fielder Coco Crisp left Tuesday’s game in the sixth inning with recurring soreness in his neck.

Crisp doubled in two runs in the second inning against Tampa Bay to help give the A’s a 3-0 lead that they took into the late innings. He was replaced in center by Craig Gentry for the bottom of the sixth.

The switch-hitting leadoff man missed seven games recently with a strained neck. His status for Wednesday’s game wasn’t immediately known.
