Joey Votto went 1-for-4 against Ricky Nolasco on Wednesday to fall just short of becoming the first Reds player since 1900 to hit .400 in consecutive months of the same season. After hitting .413 in July, Votto batted .394 in August. Josh Hamilton of the Texas Rangers was the last MLB player to achieve the feat. He hit .454 in June and .418 of July 2010 en route to winning the American League MVP award.

Garrett has nasty stuff from the mound, while Winker's ability to hit for average is very valuable, Christopher Crawford writes. Prospects to watch in September (Insider)

Big lead doesn't faze Anthony DeSclafani

DeSclafani went the distance in the Reds' 13-0 rout of the D-backs on Saturday. Over this season and last, the only other MLB pitcher who threw a shutout in a game where his team scored as many as 13 runs was Jake Arrieta, who did so vs. the Reds in his no-hitter on April 21, the Elias Sports Bureau notes.
