Lohse injured his left pinkie during an at-bat in the sixth inning of the Milwaukee Brewers' 7-1 victory against the San Diego Padres on Monday night for their eighth consecutive victory. Braun hit a two-run home run and Betancourt had a three-run shot, both off Jason Marquis in the top of the first.

Lohse (1-1) went five innings, allowing one run and five hits, but left in the sixth after dislocating his pinkie when he caught the finger on the elbow of Padres second baseman Jedd Gyorko, who was covering first, after an unsuccessful sacrifice bunt. Lohse struck out four and walked one.
"Kyle's OK," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said. "They put it back in and X-rays were negative and we think he'll be OK for his next start."
Lohse has experience with this type of injury.
"I've done it a couple of times, always in the off season," he said. "It will be fine. I think it will probably be swollen a little bit for a couple of days. But because I've done it so many times, it will be fine."
Marquis (1-2) was rocked for seven runs in four-plus innings as the Padres dropped their fourth in a row overall and sixth straight at home.
The homer for Braun was his sixth of the season. He also had an RBI single in the fifth and has 19 RBI.
In his last visit to Petco Park, Braun became the first player to hit three home runs in one game at the ballpark. He also had a triple in his last at-bat here on April 30, 2012. He has five home runs and 13 RBI in 16 games at Petco.
"I just enjoy coming back to the West Coast," Braun said. "It's always rejuvenating for me. Obviously [Petco Park] is still a challenging ballpark to hit but I've enjoyed hitting here throughout the course of my career, and as a team I think we've enjoyed getting a chance to come here and play."
"He couldn't really get anything going in that first inning," Padres manager Bud Black said. "Braun jumped on a fastball that was meant to be down and away and it just sort of tailed to the middle of the plate."
The Brewers have hit 15 home runs in eight games after hitting five homers in their first 10.
Milwaukee had scored only five runs in Lohse's first three starts before putting up a five-spot in the first inning on Monday.
The Brewers added two more runs in the fifth, one on Braun's RBI single and they scored on a wild pitch by Padres reliever Anthony Bass with the bases loaded.
The Padres, who were shut out Saturday and Sunday in San Francisco, snapped their 25-inning scoreless streak with a run in the fifth on a double by Gyorko and an RBI fielder's choice by Bass.
