MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee third baseman Elian Herrera was taken away on a backboard and stretcher after an eighth-inning collision in the Cincinnati Reds' 9-7 win over the Brewers on Saturday night.

With two on and two outs in the eighth, Skip Schumaker hit a looping fly ball down the left-field line. Herrera, left fielder Shane Peterson and shortstop Jean Segura all chased the ball, but Herrera and Peterson collided, with the ball falling between them.

Herrera did not move for more than five minutes while being treated by Brewers trainers before being rolled onto his back. He left the field in an ambulance.

After having his knee examined, Peterson was able to remain in the game.

Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported that Herrera's injury wasn't as serious as it first appeared.

Eugenio Suarez scored and Schumaker ended up at second with a double.
