The Joey Votto “Walk this Way” Report

by Bill Chuck on September 24, 2013

Last night, Joey Votto came to the plate five times against the New York Mets, and five times Votto walked to first base.

No, this wasn’t a showboating home run trot, these were five bases on balls.

2013 Five walk games

Votto is the third player to walk five times in a game this season, but the first to do it in five plate appearances. The other two times came in the 18-inning Arizona win over Philly.
