Votto doubles and is only a triple shy of the cycle.
Votto is ready...bring him up!!
Joey Votto is an impressive hitter , both the homer and double were hit to leftfield with power, they were both pitches away the double in the 8th just missed going out. He also has a single , and stole 3rd earlier in the game. Joey is now hitting over .320...

Today was Bill Bray's first effort at back to back games , last night he worked a perfect inning with a strikeout, today 1 innings a walk and 3 strikeouts. In fact he has now worked 3 times in the last 4 day , 3 innings 0 hits , 1walk, 5 strikeouts. His velocity looked good but unfortunately they didn't show a gun . He looked as if he was throwning free and easy , threw a few breaking balls.
Gardner just guessing I'd say was probably throwing in high 80's his location was bad in the 1st inning after that he looked okay.
Dragons down 5-0 now. Phipps, Heisey, Rojo, and Cozart have added singles to no avail.
Lookouts tied at 4 in the 5th.
Bruce has a single & stolen base.
Rosales has a solo HR. [Is that okay Mary? ]
Tatum has a single.
Bolivar has a single.
Janish has a walk.
Mike Stanton pitched a rehab inning for Dayton. 1 IP 1 H 1 R 1 HR 1 K. (I think I'll use that line for my Pick-5 drawing tomorrow. =)
Valiquette at Billings pitched 4.2 innings of one hit, no walk ball with 3Ks. His ERA is 1.20. Very young prospect who is starting to show results.
