Paul Goldschmidt drew three walks and went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Monday's 10-inning win over the Mariners.
Goldschmidt put the Diamondbacks up 1-0 in the first inning when he drilled a solo home run to left field off of Mike Montgomery. The Mariners didn't seem to have any interest in pitching to him after that, and with good reason: the first baseman is batting an absurd .346/.465/.611 with 22 home runs, 75 RBI, and 17 stolen bases. Goldschmidt also leads the majors in walks by a large margin with 82, 10 more than the next-highest total (Bryce Harper, 72). Jul 28 - 1:40 AM

Paul Goldschmidt did a little of everything Tuesday, finishing 2-for-3 with two walks, an RBI, a run scored and a stolen base against the Rangers.

Goldschmidt walked, stole second base and scored in the fifth inning and later added an RBI single in the eighth. The stolen base was his 16th of the season, bringing him with two steals of his single-season high. He certainly can do it all, leading the National League in batting average (.351), RBI (68) and runs scored (59) while ranking among the leaders in almost every other category with a few days left before the All-Star break.

The all-world star has now reached base in 27 games in a row and leads the majors with a .363 batting average. The rest of his triple-slash is just as impressive, as Goldschmidt holds an on-base percentage of .481 and a slugging percentage of .679 in what's been one of the most impressive offensive performances in the majors to this point.
Jun 18 - 12:59 AM

Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in Saturday's win against the Giants.

Just another day at the office for one of the game's best hitters. The 27-year-old leads the major leagues with a .355 batting average and is third in RBI behind Bryce Harper and Giancarlo Stanton. As long as he stays healthy, Goldschmidt should continue to be in the MVP conversation.
Jun 13 - 10:38 PM

Paul Goldschmidt went 4-for-5 with a double, a homer, two runs and two RBI in Wednesday's 7-6 loss to the Dodgers.

You probably haven't noticed it because of his amazing overall numbers, but this was actually the slugger's first multi-hit game of June. Overall, Goldschmidt is slashing .349/.469/.665 and is one pace for 47 homers, 25 steals, 135 RBI and 126 runs scored.
Jun 11 - 1:55 AM

Paul Goldschmidt went 1-for-3 with an RBI ground out in Sunday's loss to the Mets.

A run came into score on Goldschmidt's first inning RBI grounder. Otherwise, it was a relatively quiet game for the slugger, as Jacob deGrom had nasty stuff on the day. Goldschmidt did manage a walk. He's slashing a spectacular .343/.468/.657 with 16 homers, 47 RBI, 44 runs scored and nine steals over 201 at-bats.

He's having an all-world season and is slashing .349/.470/.677 with 16 homers, 45 RBI, 40 runs scored and eight steals over 192 at-bats. You run out of superlatives with the slugger. In his last three games, Goldschmidt has walked seven times, a sign that pitchers might just be giving up at this point.
Jun 5 - 1:29 AM

Paul Goldschmidt went 1-for-1 with four walks as the Diamondbacks fended off the Braves for a win on Tuesday.

One of the walks came with the bases loaded. With the way Goldschmidt has been hitting, it's hard to blame pitchers for wanting nothing to do with him. The first baseman is hitting .355/.471/.677 with 15 home runs, 44 RBI, and eight stolen bases.
Jun 3 - 1:07 AM

Paul Goldschmidt hit his third homer in two days during Sunday's 7-6, 17-inning loss to the Brewers.

Goldschmidt homered twice against the Brewers on Saturday. On Sunday, he stayed hot, hitting a solo homer in the first inning off of Brewers starter Tyler Wagner. Goldy would finish 3-for-4. How does one acquire just four at-bats in a 17-inning game? One walks four times, as Goldschmidt did. He's slashing .354/.463/.680 with 15 homers, 43 RBI and 39 runs scored. Nobody's hitting in Bryce Harper's universe at the moment, but Goldschmidt's pretty close.
