SAN FRANCISCO -- Home-plate umpire Adrian Johnson exited Thursday's game between the A's and Giants at AT&T Park after just three innings because of a possible concussion resulting from a foul tip to his mask.
Crew chief Angel Hernandez, who began the contest at second base, took over duties behind the plate, leaving just a pair of umpires in the field.
Johnson took a hard foul tip off the front of his mask during Pablo Sandoval's first-inning at-bat. According to umpire supervisor Ed Montague, Johnson was being examined for concussion symptoms.
