Votto hit a solo shot off left-hander Chris Capuano, who is trying to resume his career after reconstructive elbow surgery. Votto was 0 for 9 before he homered in the sixth inning.
Capuano gave up a pair of runs, three hits and two walks in 2 1-3 innings, including an RBI triple by Chris Dickerson. The 31-year-old Capuano missed the last two seasons because of elbow problems.
Reds right-hander Johnny Cueto pitched three scoreless innings, a big improvement over his first spring outing.
