Votto out for third game in a row

Votto out for third game in a row

|
CINCINNATI -- A stiff neck has put Reds first baseman Joey Votto out of the lineup for the third consecutive game on Friday. The injury wasn't originally believed to be too serious, but the question was raised to manager Dusty Baker whether Votto might have to be placed on the disabled list. It didn't seem likely.

"I don't know. I ain't no doctor. I hope not," Baker said. "I hope it's just a stiff neck. It was better yesterday than the day before. We'll wait as long as we can."
