Reds' Joey Votto looks to continue post All-Star dominance

John Lackey has been dominant recently but that's been the case at home all season. That could change against red-hot Joey Votto and the Cincinnati Reds. Lackey will try to slow Votto down and help the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Reds for the 10th time in 12 meetings at Busch Stadium on Wednesday night. Since allowing a season-high 10 runs over four innings of an 11-3 loss at Colorado...

MLB Quick Hits: Votto's big day

There haven't been many things to like about the Reds' season, but Joey Votto is certainly one. Votto reached base nine times in 10 plate appearances during Tuesday's doubleheader with the Cubs. NINE TIMES, Mrs. Bueller. After injury-shortened seasons in 2012 and 2014, Votto was the 11th first baseman off the board in this year's drafts, with an ADP of 75. He has outperformed that...

WATCH: Harper exchanges words with Votto after being hit

Bryce Harper ruffled some more feathers. Cincinnati Reds reliever Tony Cingrani drilled Harper in the back with a pitch during the seventh inning of Friday’s game against the Washington Nationals.

Someone forgot to inform Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto that players are subject to ejection should they throw their equipment.
