HOUSTON (AP) - Joey Votto’s two-run double in the seventh inning lifted the Cincinnati Reds to a 4-3 victory over the Houston Astros on Monday night.

Trailing 3-2, Paul Janish and Willy Taveras singled before Votto’s hit helped the Reds win for the third time in four games.

Bronson Arroyo (2-1) allowed three runs and nine hits in seven innings. Arthur Rhodes got out of a bases-loaded jam in the eighth by striking out Hunter Pence. Francisco Cordero then pitched the ninth for his fifth save in five tries.

Geoff Geary (0-2) took the loss.
