When Reds first baseman Joey Votto doubled in the third inning at Houston's Minute Maid Park Monday night, it marked the 11th straight game he's recorded an extra base hit in that particular stadium. Does that sound like a long streak? Evidently it's pretty tough to pull off, because it hasn't happened in more than 15 years, according to a press release the Reds sent out.

The last player to have such a streak was Jeff Bagwell, who did it from 1993-1995 in San Francisco's Candlestick/3-Com Park.

For his career, Votto entered Monday night with the following numbers in Minute Maid Park: .394/.450/.706 with 16 doubles, four triples, three home runs, 19 RBI and 17 runs. That was in 27 games.

Oh, and the 2010 NL MVP was the NL Player of the Week last week, too, so it goes without saying he's locked in.

Votto loves Minute Maid Park

Votto has killed it at the Juice Box. But that strike out he had at his second ab was awful. Especially that last swing and he knew it.
