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


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/28/2015) Reds first baseman Joey Votto provided the only significant offense of the game in Tuesday's 4-0 win over the Cardinals. Votto launched a three-run home run in the sixth inning off Jaime Garcia to break a scoreless tie.

Votto reached base safely in all four plate-appearances on Tuesday, going 3 for 3 with a walk. 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. Perhaps just as impressive is the fact that he has struck out just once--compared to 12 walks--in those 11 contests.

"It's been a while," Votto said, per MLB.com. "A couple of weeks ago, I lost my wallet. I have a green card in there, and my driver's license, credit card and cash and everything. I didn't know where it was for, like, two weeks. You ever lose your wallet? It's so annoying, right? Then finally, I found it. It was in my car -- one of the door compartments. That's how I feel with my swing -- I finally found my wallet."
