Joey Votto doesn't think his left knee problem is serious. Votto left Saturday's game after grounding out in the fifth inning. He originally jammed his knee sliding into third base on Friday night. "I tried to play through it," he said. "It started acting up. There is some inflammation in my knee." Votto would not say whether he'll play today. "You'll have to ask (trainer Paul Lessard) and (Reds manager) Dusty (Baker)," he said. Votto has started every game but one this year. With the Reds on 17-game streak without a day off and Votto a lock to go to the All-Star Game, there's a good chance that'll he'll be out of the lineup today regardless of how good the knee is.
