Joey Votto had looked very human at the plate lately.

That is, until he went 2-for-3 with a walk in Sunday's 4-2 win against the Cardinals.

He entered Sunday night's game with one hit in his last 13 at-bats. He's 6-for-28 (.214) since returning from the knee injury that had him out for three games.

He went hitless Friday and Saturday. It was only the third time he went hitless in back-to-back games this year. He hasn't gone hitless in three straight games since Spetember of last year.
