Joey Votto Is Having Himself A Week

Joey Votto Is Having Himself A Week

The Cincinnati Reds first baseman is just having a little fun with Chicago Cubs fans - instead of tossing the foul ball gingerly to the crowd, he chose to chuck it out of Wrigley Field.

And he didn't let up Monday in the series opener against the Cincinnati Reds.

Yankees 5, Mets 4 • Jacoby Ellsbury and Gary Sanchez homered to help the host team win in a matchup of New York's big-league clubs. Jesse Winker went 2 for 3 at the dish while Jose Peraza added a pinch-hit double and Zack Cozart, along with Adam Duvall and Eugenio Suarez, added a base hit in the win.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Cubs are -200 money line favorites to knock off the Reds, who have odds of +179 to pull off the upset in Chicago.

The Chicago Cubs will look to bounce back after dropping game two on Tuesday. The Cubs would add another 4 runs thanks to RBI sac fly from La Stella and RBI singles from Rizzo and Schwarber.

Padres 8, Phillies 4 • Corey Spangenberg homered and had a career-high four RBIs and Dinelson Lamet threw seven strong innings as San Diego won at home.

Dodgers 6, White Sox 1 • Los Angeles broke open a close game with five runs in the bottom of the eighth inning, taking the lead when Joc Pederson was hit by a pitch. Pedro Strop took the loss, falling to 3-3 this season. In fact, his 55 games this year represent the most action he has seen since 2014 - a season in which he had emerged as one of the game's most productive backstops with 25 long balls and a 147 OPS+. He got a no-decision in a 10-3 Reds victory. With the team looking to go up 1.5 games over the Red Birds, they are off to a good start. Cincinnati is 10-2 in Bailey's last 12 starts against Chicago.
