    Roger Bernadina gets first start first base

    In the wake of Joey Votto's injury, the Reds have been forced to scramble to find answers at first base. The Votto-sized hole in the lineup was filled for at least one night by outfielder Roger Bernadina Friday against the Diamondbacks, who had never started a game at first base before. "[Manager Bryan Price] asked me if I could play first base and I said 'yeah.' I did it in the past and fielded a couple of ground balls and stuff like that," Bernadina told MLB.com Friday. "I'll try to do my part to help the team." Bernadina last played first base in exhibition games when he was a prospect, but had never played a regulation game there. He acquired a first baseman's mitt in recent days and began working out there. Bernadina has seen little plaing time this season, hitting .160/.300/.200 in 50 at-bats.
