When Joey Votto went down, plenty of other Reds stepped up

It’s the greatest tribute to Dusty Baker and his players that the Reds have gone 16-5 since Joey Votto got hurt. That number tells you the Reds are a team. That means the group of players is bigger than any single guy. In other words, they figure out away to win. In this case, Ryan Ludwick has batted .344 with six home runs and 21 RBIs in this stretch. Only Albert Pujols (23), Buster Posey (23) and Adrian Gonzalez (23) have more. Scott Rolen is hitting .357, Drew Stubbs .329 without Votto in the lineup.
