Joey Votto is his old self again.
At game time of the Battle for the Basement, (Reds v Braves), Votto is hitting a season-high .261.
That average puts him in the same company as most of his teammates...Zack Cozart .264....Jay Bruce .265....Brandon Phillips .260... Tucker Barnhart ..264.
“It looks like he's locked in," Bryan Price said.."He’s getting the barrel of his bat on the ball. He’s not swinging at balls out of the zone, and he’s hitting a variety of pitches.”
Votto is third in the National League with 62 walks and ninth with a .391 on-base percentage.
