Paul Goldschmidt went 1-for-4 with an RBI double in the Diamondbacks' loss to the Padres on Monday.

Goldschmidt extended his hit streak to five games with an RBI double down the left field line off Padres reliever Craig Stammen, plating Eduardo Escobar from second base, in the eighth inning. After an ice-cold two-month stretch to begin the season, the 30-year-old veteran slugger is hitting .348 (111-for-319) with 24 homers and 60 RBI in 82 games since June 1.

Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in the Diamondbacks' 3-2 loss to the Dodgers on Sunday.

Goldschmidt singled off Dodgers starter Walker Buehler in both the first and seventh innings. He scored the only Arizona run through the first eight frames, crossing the plate on an RBI sacrifice fly from Alex Avila in the seventh. He was also walked intentionally in the ninth. The 30-year-old veteran slugger is hitting .295/.398/.548 with 84 runs scored, 31 homers, 78 RBI and five steals in 599 plate appearances. He's striking out a bit more and his stolen base numbers have fallen off a cliff, but he's on pace to eclipse his previous career-high in homers (36), which he set back in 2013 and matched last season.
Sep 2 - 9:06 PM

Paul Goldschmidt homered and doubled in a losing cause against the Dodgers on Friday.

The first-inning homer gave the Diamondbacks the only runs they'd score tonight. Goldschmidt ended up hitting .356 with seven homers and 19 RBI in August. That's not far off what he did to win NL Player of the Month honors for June, but he's likely to place behind Ronald Acuna, Christian Yelich and maybe teammate David Peralta this month.

Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-5 in the Diamondbacks' win over the Dodgers on Thursday.

Goldschmidt smacked a pair of two-out singles off Dodgers southpaw starter Rich Hill in the first and third innings, respectively. It was his 10th multi-hit performance since August 2. The 30-year-old veteran endured a brutal two-month stretch to begin the year, but he's hitting an unreal .344 (105-for-305) with 51 runs scored, 23 homers, 57 RBI and three steals in 78 games since June 1.
Aug 31 - 1:45 AM

Paul Goldschmidt clubbed his 30th home run of the season on Sunday, powering the Diamondbacks to a 5-2 victory over the Mariners.

The Diamondbacks entered the third inning trailing 1-0, when they put up a five-spot on Mariners' hurler Mike Leake, capped off by a three-run bomb off the bat of Goldschmidt. He has completely turned his season around and has vaulted himself into the thick of the MVP discussion in the National League, slashing .294/.397/.551 with 30 long balls and 76 RBI.

Paul Goldschmidt went 3-for-3 with a homer, a double and a walk against the Angels on Wednesday.

Aug 23 - 12:57 AM

Paul Goldschmidt went 4-for-4 and knocked in four runs against the Padres on Saturday.

That didn't stop the Diamondbacks from losing, but it was still a huge night for him. Goldschmidt had RBI singles in the first, third, and seventh innings and knocked in a run with a double in the fifth. The 30-year-old has been on a torrid hot streak of late, hitting .488 (20-for-41) over his last 10 games. It might have been unthinkable given where he was around the start of June, but Goldschmidt now holds a very Goldschmidt-like .293/.397/.547 batting line on the year.
Aug 19 - 12:12 AM

Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-2 with a two-run homer and three walks in the leading the Diamondbacks past the Padres 9-4 on Friday

Goldschmidt is batting .386 with four homers and four doubles during his current 10-game hitting streak. In spite of his first-half slump, it looks like he's going to finish with something pretty close to his usual numbers this season. The exception is in steals; he's stuck on five right now after finishing with 18 last season and 32 in 2016.
Aug 18 - 2:36 AM

Paul Goldschmidt will serve as the designated hitter Tuesday against the Rangers.

Playing under AL rules allows Goldschmidt to get somewhat of a breather. Daniel Descalso will make the start at first base while Eduardo Escobar will play third.

Paul Goldschmidt went 3-for-5 with two home runs and three RBI in the Diamondbacks' 9-2 rout of the Reds on Sunday.

Goldschmidt clubbed a two-run shot off Red starter Luis Castillo in the top of the sixth inning, doubled to lead off the top of the eighth inning, and added a solo blast off Reds reliever Keury Mella in the top of the ninth. It was all part of a five-homer day for the D-backs, with Daniel Descalso, Eduardo Escobar, and David Peralta also going deep. Goldschmidt is up to 26 home runs and 64 RBI in 117 games this season, to along with an outstanding .919 OPS. That early-season slump is a distant memory at this point.
Aug 12 - 4:10 PM

Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-4 with a double as the Diamondbacks were shut out by Anthony DeSclafani and the Reds on Friday night.

As a team, the Diamondbacks tallied just five hits in this one, with Goldschmidt being the only player with multiple knocks and the only extra-base hit. He has rebounded tremendously from his horrendous start to the season and is now slashing .278/.387/.515 with 24 homers, 61 RBI and four stolen bases.
Aug 10 - 10:40 PM

Paul Goldschmidt went 0-for-4 with a walk and two strikeouts in Thursday's loss to the Giants.

Not much doing for Goldy on Thursday evening, but we'll toss him a mulligan. After a slow start to the season, he's picked up the pace as we've hit the dog days of summer and is now slashing .275/.382/.515 with 23 home runs and 59 RBI in 108 games played. One category in which Goldschmidt normally contributes that he simply hasn't this year -- that of the stolen base. He has just three base thefts to his name at this juncture after swiping at least 15 bags in each of the last three seasons.
Aug 3 - 1:41 AM

Paul Goldschmidt went 1-for-3 with an RBI double in the Diamondbacks win over the Rangers on Tuesday.

Goldschmidt plated Jon Jay with an RBI double to left field off Rangers starter Bartolo Colon in the third inning. He also drew an intentional walk in the sixth inning. The 30-year-old perennial MVP candidate was mired in a horrific slump to begin the year, but has hit a blistering .336 with 17 homers and 45 RBI since May 25.
Aug 1 - 2:03 AM

Paul Goldschmidt hit his 23rd home run of the season Sunday in the Diamondbacks' defeat of the Padres.
