CINCINNATI (AP) -Reds catcher David Ross left the game against San Diego in the bottom of the third inning after being injured in a collision at the plate with Padres center fielder Mike Cameron in the top of the third.
Cameron knocked Ross to the ground while scoring from second base on Khalil Greene's two-out single to left field that gave San Diego a 3-0 lead. He was on the ground in front of home plate for several minutes while being examined by trainers before deciding to stay in the game.
The nature of Ross' injury was not immediately announced.
Ross led off the bottom of the third with a bloop single down the right-field line, then left the game. Catcher Javier Valentin pinch-ran for Ross and stayed in the game.
Ross entered the game hitting .204 with 15 home runs and 33 RBIs in 95 games.
