Votto went 2-for-3 with a walk, one RBI and a run scored in Sunday's 8-2 victory over Milwaukee. Votto gave the Reds an early lead after driving in Tucker Barnhart on an RBI double in the first inning. Votto went 4-for-14 with three walks, a double and one RBI during Cincinnati's four-game series with the Brewers. He's now batting .300 with eight homers and 43 RBI through 83 games this season.
Votto was ejected from Wednesday's game against the Braves in the first inning for arguing balls and strikes. It was Votto's eighth career ejection, per C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic Cincinnati. After a slow start to the campaign, Votto is now batting .301/.434/.459 with an NL-leading 61 walks, and his second-half surges in recent years offer hope that the best is still yet to come.
Votto went 1-for-4 with a three-run homer and two runs scored Saturday against the Cubs. Votto took catcher Chris Gimenez deep in the eighth inning to put the Reds up 11-2. While the opposing pitcher wasn't daunting, Votto now has eight home runs on the season and two in his past five games. Despite having only those two homers to this point in June, he entered Saturday's game slugging .516 for the month, a notable increase from his early-season performance.
Votto went 1-for-4 with a run, a walk and a three-run triple in Tuesday's extra-inning win over the Royals. Votto broke a 1-1 tie in the top of the 10th with a three-run triple -- his second three-bagger of the year -- off reliever Kevin McCarthy. Votto is now hitting .309 with 30 RBI and 34 runs scored. While his power numbers are down so far, he's carrying the third-best on-base percentage (.433) in the majors, trailing only Mike Trout (.435) and Freddie Freeman (.434).
Votto went 3-for-5 with a run scored in Wednesday's win over the Diamondbacks. All three hits were singles, as Votto extended his modest six-game hitting streak. In that span, the 34-year-old is hitting .440 (11-for-25) with a couple of RBI and five runs scored. Votto continues to be an incredibly steady producer, slashing .295/.408/.430 to go along with six homers and 24 RBI.
