Paul Goldschmidt went 1-for-3 with a double, a walk and a strikeout in Wednesday's win over the Rockies.

Goldschmidt doubled off Rockies starter Chad Bettis, his 37th two-bagger of the season. Overall, he's slashing .315/.432/.557 with 31 homers, 106 RBI and 21 steals. The steals number is the best in his career and should that triple-slash hold steady over the closing days, all three of those numbers would represent career bests as well.

Paul Goldschmidt is out of the Diamondbacks' starting lineup Wednesday against the Rockies.

There were no street clothes in his locker at Coors Field, which is a pretty good indication that the MVP candidate has been excused from the team and flown back to Arizona for the birth of his first child. Arizona has a scheduled team off day Thursday.

Goldschmidt jumped the Diamondbacks out to a 1-0 lead with a solo home run off John Lackey in the first inning, but the team wouldn't score again in the game. The bomb was Goldy's 25th of the season and pushed his RBI total to 94. Pair those counting stats with a .331/.446/.571 triple-slash and you have yourself a legitimate MVP candidate. Oh, and he's also stolen a career-high 20 bases. Not too shabby.

Paul Goldschmidt terrorized the Reds in Saturday's 11-7 win, finishing 4-for-5 with a pair of two-run homers, four total RBI, three runs scored and a stolen base.

This was Goldschmidt's second four-hit game of the season. He started off the hit parade with a two-run homer against Reds starter Andrew DeSclafani in the first inning to give the Snakes a 3-0 advantage, then smacked another two-run bomb in the seventh inning to push his team's lead to 8-5. He'll be on the short-list for NL MVP when the dust of the season has settled, as he's hitting .331/.444/.568 with 24 home runs, 93 RBI and 20 steals.

Paul Goldschmidt went 1-for-4 with an RBI single and three walks as the Diamondbacks lost in 15 innings to the Pirates on Tuesday.

Goldschmidt opened the scoring with an RBI single in the top of the first inning. The Pirates didn't seem interested in pitching to him, walking him in half of his plate appearances the rest of the night. It's hard to blame them, as Goldschmidt is a candidate for the NL MVP award, batting .333/.449/.567 with 22 home runs, 87 RBI, and 19 stolen bases.
