Votto's surgically repaired knee passing tests
CINCINNATI -- During Sunday's 5-1 loss to the Astros, Reds first baseman Joey Votto was able to run hard and score from first base on Jay Bruce's fourth-inning triple.

"I felt good," Votto said following the game.

Votto, who turned 29 on Monday, was back on the field for early batting practice and showed no signs of favoring his surgically repaired left knee. He returned to the lineup Sept. 4 and, entering Monday night, had reached base safely in 10 of his 16 plate appearances.

"He's doing pretty good," Reds manager Dusty Baker said on Monday. "Yesterday was a great indicator when he went from first to home. He was breathing pretty good, but he said he needed it. He needed to make that run. That was a good sign."
