Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips suffered a broken right index finger during the 11th inning of a 5-4 victory over the Brewers on Tuesday night.

In the top of the 11th against reliever Seth McClung, Phillips bunted a 94-mph fastball foul but caught his right index finger on the ball. Two pitches later, he was still able to lace a hard RBI single to right-center field that scored Corey Patterson with the go-ahead run.

Phillips remained in the game for the bottom half of the 11th. It wasn't until X-rays were taken after the game that a fracture was revealed.

On Wednesday, Phillips will head back to Cincinnati to be examined by team medical director Dr. Tim Kremchek.
