Yes, I saw that news. Joey Votto and Elly De La Cruz had amazing games on Saturday, June 24, 2023. Votto hit two home runs, including a go-ahead three-run shot in the seventh inning, while De La Cruz hit for the cycle, becoming the first Reds player to do so since 2018. The Reds won the game 11-10, extending their winning streak to 12 games.
Votto’s first home run was a solo shot in the third inning that tied the game at 3-3. His second home run was a three-run shot in the seventh inning that gave the Reds a 7-6 lead. Votto also had a single and a walk in the game.
De La Cruz’s cycle was the highlight of the game. He hit a single in the first inning, a double in the third inning, a triple in the sixth inning, and a home run in the eighth inning. De La Cruz also had a stolen base in the game.
The Reds’ winning streak is their longest since 2012. They are currently in first place in the National League Central division.
