Brewers 3B Herrera hurt in collision with teammate

MILWAUKEE (AP) Milwaukee Brewers third baseman Elian Herrera was injured Saturday night when he collided with teammate Shane Peterson as they tried to chase down a looping fly ball in left field.

Herrera, left fielder Peterson and shortstop Jean Segura were all going after a ball hit by Cincinnati's Skip Schumaker. Eugenio Suarez scored on the double to tie the game 7-7.

Herrera did not move for more than 5 minutes while being treated by Brewers trainers before being rolled over onto his back. He was placed on a backboard and stretcher and left the field in an ambulance.

His condition and injury was not immediately known.

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