Joey Votto

While it didn’t get much attention compared to Andre Ethier‘s 30-game hitting streak, Joey Votto had been on base every game this season for the Reds, at least until Sunday.  He went 0-for-4 in Cincinnati’s 2-0 win over the Cubs, ending the streak at 33 games. 

Votto entered the day seventh in the NL with a .345 average and second to Matt Holliday with a .476 on-base percentage.   He was leading the league with 27 runs scored, one more than Holliday and Colby Rasmus.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reported that Votto was one game shy of tying the Reds record for consecutive games on base to start a season.  Dave Collins reached in 34 games to begin the 1981 season.
