Reds' Votto leaves game in first inning
Kevin Barker struck out looking batting for Votto in the bottom of the inning. Barker stayed in the game at first base.
Votto, who tied injured teammate Jay Bruce for the team lead in home runs with his 18th on Tuesday, missed 21 games in late May and June with depression and anxiety related to the death of his father last year. He missed several games and had to leave others earlier in May with dizziness caused by an inner-ear infection.
Votto entered the game hitting .317 with 59 RBIs in 88 games.
