CINCINNATI (WXIX) - Joey Votto did it again... and now he’s approaching Major League history.

Votto extended his streak of home runs in consecutive games to seven with a 423-foot solo shot in the Reds’ series opener against the Mets at Citi Field.

He is now one off the Major League record of eight consecutive games -- a record held by Dale Long, Don Mattingly and Ken Griffey, Jr.

He also tied Barry Bonds for the longest streak of consecutive games with a home run for a player age 37 or older.

Votto has now hit a Cincinnati Reds record nine home runs in his last seven games.
