Votto drove a 3-0 pitch from Boone Logan (1-1) over the wall in center for his fifth homer. Votto's fourth career game-ending shot traveled an estimated 437 feet.
Arenado went 0 for 3, snapping his hitting streak at a club-record 28 games, the longest in the majors this season. But he also walked and scored on Justin Morneau's tying double in the ninth, handing Jonathan Broxton (1-0) his first blown save in six opportunities.
Johnny Cueto had another strong outing for Cincinnati, striking out eight in eight innings of two-run ball. The right-hander allowed five hits and walked one.
Cueto has pitched eight or more innings in five consecutive starts. He has gone at least seven in each of his eight starts this season.
Colorado's Jhoulys Chacin, making his second start of the season after missing the first month with a right shoulder strain, allowed two runs and four hits in six innings.
