  • Joey Votto went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run, a walk and two runs scored in Saturday's 11-2 win over the Cubs.
    Advice: Votto put the exclamation point on Saturday's blowout of the division foe, rocking a three-run home run off Chris Giminez with two outs in the eighth inning to put the Reds up by an 11-2 margin. The home run was just his eighth of the season. The All Star first baseman has been dragging a bit with the power bat in general this year, as he's currently slashing. 299/.427/.459 in 75 games. He has posted a slugging percentage north of .540 each of the last three seasons, so there's plenty of room for improvement, here.
  • Joey Votto hit a grand slam and walked twice versus the Tigers on Tuesday.
    Advice: The slam off Matt Boyd was just his third in 112 career plate appearances with the bases loaded. He has just seven homers and 36 RBI through 71 games this year after finishing with 36 homers and 100 RBI last year. Of course, he's still as good of a bet as anyone to lead the NL in OBP.
