Joey Votto hits lead off home run Thursday

Joey Votto went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in the Reds' 4-1 win over the Padres on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact:

This was just Votto's second home run of the season, and it came on Chris Paddack's third pitch of the game. He raised his average to .228 and his ISO to .197 after this game. Votto should turn things around with the average, but he's no guarantee to rebound in the power department given his age. He still deserves a long leash because of his outstanding track record.
