PORTLAND — Carl Crawford said he would rather “get a lot of hits” but he settled for an infield single and two walks in his appearance at a sold-out Hadlock Field tonight.

Crawford, the Boston Red Sox outfielder, made a rehab appearance with the Portland Sea Dogs, as he recovers from wrist and elbow injuries.

Crawford was in left field and played seven innings, as the Sea Dogs lost 11-3 to the Trenton Thunder.

Crawford drew a walk in the first inning. He advanced to second base on a ground-out and then stole third base. Crawford scored on Bryce Brentz’s sacrifice fly.

Crawford flied out to left field in the third inning and walked in the fifth.

In the seventh inning, Crawford hit a slow bouncer to first base. He raced down the line and beat the throw to the pitcher covering. Crawford was then lifted for a pinch-runner.

The Sea Dogs will play Wednesday night in Manchester, N.H. Crawford will stay with the team and, according to media reports, Jacoby Ellsbury will also be joining the Sea Dogs. Ellsbury is recovering from a shoulder injury.
