CINCINNATI -- In the first game of his rehab assignment for Triple-A Louisville on Sunday, Reds first baseman Joey Votto went 1-for-3 with a single before being lifted for a pinch-runner in the seventh.

That one hit was important in one sense. Votto's leadoff single up the middle in the seventh broke up Pawtucket pitcher Chris Hernandez's no-hitter.

Votto has been out of the Reds' lineup since May 16 because of a strained left quadriceps muscle and went on the disabled list May 21. The Reds planned to re-evaluate Votto's status after Sunday's game to determined if he'll need more rehab games before being activated.
