      Reds 1B Joey Votto collects three more hits in loss to Mets

      Reds first baseman Joey Votto went 3 for 5 in a 10-2 loss to the Mets on Saturday. As a forgettable season winds down for Cincinnati, the All-Star first baseman is hitting the ball the best he has all year. Votto now has nine multi-hit efforts in September and has reached base safely in every game of the month as well. Even more impressively however, the last time Votto failed to get on via either base hit or walk dates all the way back to Aug. 10 against the Padres, an amazing streak of 43 contests. When the veteran isn't pounding out base hits or homers, he's drawing an incredible number of base on balls, with the 139 he's amassed this season serving as a career high and contributing greatly to the .464 OBP figure he entered Saturday's game with.

      Red-hot Joey Votto launches three-run home run in Reds' win

      Reds first baseman Joey Votto provided the only significant offense of the game in Tuesday's 4-0 win over the Cardinals.

He drove in three runs and scored two, recording his 19th home run and his 19th double of the season. Votto has been on fire at the plate recently, batting a ridiculous .595 with three homers and eight RBI over his past 11 games.
