Votto helps Reds beat Pirates 13-1 to stay in playoff race

CINCINNATI (AP) Joey Votto homered twice and drove in four runs, and the Cincinnati Reds pounded the Pittsburgh Pirates 13-1 on Wednesday to stay alive in the race for the second NL wild card.

Nick Castellanos, rookie Jonathan India and Eugenio Suarez also connected as Cincinnati (82-75) posted its fourth straight victory, clinching a second straight winning season. Castellanos had five RBIs, and India finished with four hits and scored four times.

"I'd be lying if I said Nick and I weren't competing. Competition is in our nature. When he drives in runs it doesn't affect me. I still have my chances," Votto said. "I'm taking more chances and with that comes more outs but I knew I could hit more home runs and drive in more runs."
