Jeff Keppinger's bases-loaded double highlighted Cincinnati's four-run third inning that sent the Reds to a 7-to-3 win over Milwaukee.

Reds starter Kyle Lohse (lohsh) got the win to improve to
6-and-12.

Brewers starter Jeff Suppan fell to 8-and-9. He gave up five
runs on ten hits in five innings. Suppan has pitched five or fewer
innings in six of his last eight starts.

Reds catcher David Ross dislocated the small
finger on his right hand while sliding for a double against the
Milwaukee Brewers tonight.

Ross led off the fourth inning against Jeff Suppan with a double
into the left-field corner. He went into second base with a
headfirst slide, scraping his right hand through the infield dirt
and then jamming it into the base.

X-rays found no fracture. The finger was put back into place.

There's no indication how long Ross will be out. Javier Valentin
took his place in the game.
