Paul Goldschmidt walked four times and had an RBI double in his only official at-bat Tuesday, helping the Diamondbacks to a lopsided 11-2 win over the Reds.

That the D'backs scored 11 runs, and only one was by Goldschmidt despite his being on base five times, is actually sort of mystifying. It speaks to a deep Arizona offense that will only get better with Tuesday's addition of J.D. Martinez. Martinez figures to hit behind Goldschmidt in the lineup, and the heavy hitters will only serve to make each other better, it stands to reason. That's hard to do for Goldschmidt, who's hitting .317/.435/.583 while ranking among the league leaders in basically every offensive category again this year.

Paul Goldschmidt finished 2-for-3 with an RBI and a walk in the Diamondbacks' loss to the Braves on Sunday.

Goldschmidt produced Arizona's only run of the afternoon with his RBI single off Braves starter Jaime Garcia in the top of the fifth inning. The star first baseman is slashing .315/.428/.579 with 21 home runs, 71 RBI, 14 stolen bases, and 74 runs scored in 91 games this season.

Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-5 with a solo homer in Friday’s loss to the Braves.

This was his first multi-hit game since June 25. Goldschmidt has seen his batting average slide a bit during that time, but he still owns a monster .314/.427/.584 batting line with 21 homers, 68 RBI, and 13 steals through 89 games. He leads the National League with 74 runs scored.

Paul Goldschmidt finished 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's win against the Reds.

Goldschmidt's home run and RBI were his first over the past six games dating back to June 29 against the Cardinals. His fantasy owners shouldn't be terribly concerned, as the slugger has a penchant for making up for lost time in a hurry.
Jul 8 - 1:53 AM

Paul Goldschmidt was hitless across two at-bats in Sunday's game against the Rockies, but he was able to reach with two walks while posting a run scored.

Goldschmidt sits atop the majors with 66 RBI, one ahead of teammate Jake Lamb. The former Texas State Bobcats standout is slumping a bit, going just 2-for-20 (.100) with one RBI over the past six games to drop his average from .332 to .316. Still, his overall body of work has earned him a spot on the 2017 National League All-Star roster as a reserve, and rightly so.

He leads the National League in runs and is tied for second in RBI.
