Colorado third baseman Nolan Arenado goes 0-for-3 with a walk, snapping his hitting streak at 28 games, which is a franchise record and the longest in the majors this season.

CINCINNATI — Joey Votto led off the ninth with a home run to give the Reds a 4-3 win over the Rockies on Friday. He drove a 3-and-0 pitch from Boone Logan about 437 feet to center.

Colorado third baseman Nolan Arenado went 0-for-3, snapping his hitting streak at a club-record 28 games. It also was the longest in the majors this season.

But Arenado walked and scored the tying run on Justin Morneau's double in the ninth.

"I didn't see many pitches to hit, and the ones I saw, I missed, but walks are a big deal to me," Arenado said. "I'm not a big walker. I was just doing what I could to help the team win."

Johnny Cueto had another strong outing for Cincinnati, striking out eight in eight innings. The righty allowed five hits and walked one.

Colorado's Jhoulys Chacin, making his second start after missing the first month with a right shoulder strain, allowed two runs and four hits in six innings.

Skip Schumaker hit Chacin's second pitch of the game up the left-center gap for a double. He moved to third on Brayan Pena's groundout to first and scored on Brandon Phillips' sacrifice fly.

Todd Frazier drove Chacin's first pitch of the second inning 485 feet to a party area above the center-field batter's eye.
