MON­DAY’S HIGH­LIGHTS

The Denver Post - - SPORTS -

Joey Votto home­red for the third straight game and pulled into a tie with Ted Kluszewski on the Reds’ ca­reer list, lead­ing Cincin­nati to an 11-3 vic­tory over the Padres. Votto’s 251st ca­reer homer off Jhoulys Chacin (11-8) moved him into a tie for fifth place with Big Klu, the first base­man who cut the sleeves off his uni­form to free his big up­per arms. … Trevor Wil­liams al­lowed one hit over seven dom­i­nant in­nings to out­duel Detroit’s Jor­dan Zim­mer­mann and lead the Pi­rates over the Tigers 3-0. Wil­liams (5-4) struck out five and walked two, giv­ing up a lead­off sin­gle to Brian McCann in the third. Wil­liams threw a ca­reer-high 107 pitches and never al­lowed a run­ner to reach third base. … Matt Car­pen­ter hit a three-run homer in St. Louis’ six-run fourth in­ning, and the Car­di­nals beat the Roy­als 11-3. Paul DeJong and Kolten Wong also con­nected for the Car­di­nals. … Ed­die Rosario dou­bled to tie the game at 4 in the bot­tom of the seventh in­ning, then came around to score the win­ning run on a balk from Oliver Drake as the Twins ral­lied from a 4-1 deficit to beat the Brew­ers 5-4.
