*Joey Votto, who is 1-for-7 with two walks and a sac fly the past two games, got a rest.

“He looks a little bit slow, a little bit off,” manager Dusty Baker said. “He’ll play [Sunday]. I’ll try to play everybody five innings today, the same tomorrow.”

*Scott Rolen was rested for the last four innings of Friday’s game and isn’t getting a break today.

“I’ll try to play some of the guys, especially guys that have a chance to play on the playoff roster and get them some at-bats,” Baker said.

*Arthur Rhodes and Aroldis Chapman aren’t expected to be available today.
