CHICAGO – After missing two games because of an illness, Joey Votto swung at a first-pitch fastball from Chicago Cubs right-hander Yu Darvish in his first at-bat and lined an RBI double into the right-field corner earlier this week.

It was one of the hardest-hit balls the entire night, whacking the inside pitch with a 104-mph exit velocity.
