Joey Votto On Base In Nine of Ten Plate Appearances

Joey Votto leaves town exceptionally hot.

The Reds' firstbaseman hit safely in five straight at-bats to raise his season average to .298.

After he hit his 17th home run in the fifth inning of the first game, he singled in the seventh and eighth. Votto had singles in the first and fourth inning in the second game.

Votto reached base four times in the first game and in all five plate appearances in the second game, including intentional walks in the second and eighth innings, reaching base in seven straight appearances. He is the first Reds' player to reach base nine times in a doubleheader since Pete Rose did it in the 1970's.

Since the All-Star break Votto is hitting. 538.

His on-base percentage went from .401 which was fourth in the National League just behind Anthony Rizzo  to .420 after the doubleheader, where he trails Bryce Harper's league-leading  .463 and Paul Goldschmidt's .455.
