Reds Defeat Orioles 10-5

BALTIMORE (AP) — Joey Votto homered twice and drove in five runs, and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Baltimore Orioles 10-5 Saturday night in a long-ball duel that featured nine home runs.

Votto hit a three-run drive in the third inning and put Cincinnati ahead for good with a two-run shot in the fifth. The two home runs matched the total of his previous 19 games and gave him 101 for his career.

The reigning NL MVP went 3 for 4 with a walk to raise his batting average to .320.

Jonny Gomes, Scott Rolen and Drew Stubbs also connected for the Reds. The five home runs were a season high.

Adam Jones, Nick Markakis, Matt Wieters and J.J. Hardy homered for Baltimore. It was the first time the Orioles hit four homers in a game since Aug. 10, 2010, in Cleveland.
