Packy Dillon played in three games with the Reds in 1875-the May 4 game against the Brown Stockings and the two games against the Westerns at Keokuk on May 6 and 8. E.H. Tobias provided the box scores of all three of these games in his TSN series on the history of baseball in St. Louis. Specifically, these box scores appear in the February 8, 1896 issue of The Sporting News.
Interestingly, Tobias dates the second Reds/Western tilt as May 10, 1875 while most other sources have the game being played on May 8.
