Joey Votto routinely feasts on Miami Marlins' pitching, and this season seems to be no different.
The All-Star first baseman looks for another big performance at the plate as he tries to help the Cincinnati Reds to a fifth straight win overall and on the road Wednesday night against the Marlins.
Votto is a .355 hitter in 38 career meetings with the Marlins, including .440 with five homers and 11 RBIs in the past 13. He's 12 for 23 while driving in five runs in his last six visits to Miami.
The venue hasn't made much of a difference of late, as the 2010 NL MVP is 10 for 15 with two homers and four RBIs over the past three matchups. Votto had three hits and drew a bases-loaded walk in a 6-2 win Tuesday in the opener of this three-game series.
He's a big reason the Reds (23-16) have won four in a row on the road, going 10 for 16 while scoring five runs. His .393 average away from home is among the NL's best, and he's 3 for 4 with a homer against Marlins scheduled starter Alex Sanabia.
