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. May 31 - 8:08 PM

Paul Goldschmidt went 3-for-5 with two homers and four RBI in Saturday's 7-3 win over the Brewers.

Goldschmidt more or less ruined Brewer starter Kyle Lohse's life, hitting a solo homer in the third inning before cranking a monster three-run shot in the fourth that went approximately 433 feet. He's now hitting .345/.448/.661 with 14 homers and 42 RBI. The numbers speak for themselves.
May 30 - 7:21 PM

Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer and three RBI in Sunday's win over the Cubs.

Goldy almost single-handedly won the Diamondbacks the game, as he drove in three of the four runs. The other was driven in by starting pitcher Jeremy Hellickson. Goldschmidt hit an RBI single in the first inning, then decided to up the excitement factor with a two-run homer in the third. Just another day at the office for the slugger, who is hitting a phenomenal .333/.438/.635 with 12 homers, 38 RBI and 34 runs scored.
May 24 - 6:58 PM

Paul Goldschmidt went 3-for-5 with a homer and three RBI against the Cubs on Friday.

After the Cubs pulled ahead in the 10th, it was Goldschmidt's two-run homer that tied the game back up. He's certainly in the running for early NL MVP honors with his .331 average, 11 homers and 35 RBI in 41 games.
May 23 - 2:11 AM

Paul Goldschmidt is not in Arizona's lineup Thursday.

It's a rare day of rest for the star first baseman. Mark Trumbo will cover first and David Peralta is in left field. Goldschmidt is just 4-for-24 with two walks on the Diamondbacks' current road trip, but he's capable of busting out of the mini slump at any moment.
May 21 - 9:45 AM

Paul Goldschmidt went 1-for-4 with a two-run double in Friday's loss to the Phillies.

Goldschmidt's two-run double in the top of the seventh inning temporarily put the Diamondbacks up 3-1, but the Snake bullpen would immediately give the advantage back, as the Phillies scored three times in the bottom of the frame. Goldschmidt (.344/.446/.668 with nine homers, 30 RBI and 28 runs scored) is doing all he can to lift an inertia-less Diamondbacks team, but there's no sign that things are going to improve in the near future for his 15-19 squad.
May 15 - 10:17 PM

Paul Goldschmidt fell a home run shy of the cycle Wednesday, finishing 3-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored in a loss to the Nationals.

Goldschmidt built up to a climactic at-bat in the eighth after singling in the first, doubling in the third and tripling in the fifth, but he struck out to fall short of the feat. The game was a nice breakout for Goldy, who was hitless in his prior three games before Wednesday. A lack of hits hasn't been a problem for the first baseman often this year, as he's hitting .347/.451/.653 with nine homers, 28 RBI and 28 runs scored on the season.
May 13 - 7:22 PM

Paul Goldschmidt went 1-for-2 with four walks in Saturday's extra-inning defeat at the hands of the Padres.

The Padres must have looked at Goldschmidt's .352/.435/.667 line coming into the game and decided that it would be easier if they didn't have to deal with him at all. When he had a chance, he rapped a single. Goldschmidt almost drew a fifth walk in the bottom of the 12th inning, but he struck out with a 3-2 count to end the game.
May 10 - 12:37 AM

Paul Goldschmidt finished 2-for-4 with a double, home run, two RBI and two runs scored in the Diamondbacks' 11-0 demolition of San Diego on Thursday.

This is getting silly. He now has multi-hit games in seven of nine and has gone deep in two straight. Goldie is slashing .346/.433/.644 with eight homers and 26 RBI.
May 8 - 12:38 AM

Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-5 with an RBI single, a stolen base, and a solo home run to help the Diamondbacks take the back end of a double-header against the Rockies on Wednesday.

The Diamondbacks won 13-7 in the matinee, but Goldschmidt went 0-for-5 with four strikeouts. He turned things around in the nightcap, drilling a Jordan Lyles offering to right-center in the fourth inning to break a scoreless tie. He added an RBI single in the fifth inning to push his team's lead to 4-1. Goldschmidt owns a stellar .340/.431/.610 battling line along with seven home runs, 24 RBI, and six stolen bases on the season.
May 6 - 9:56 PM

Paul Goldschmidt had his third straight three-hit game in Wednesday's 9-1 win versus the Rockies, finishing 3-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored.

He also walked and stole a base. His eighth inning RBI single pushed his MLB-leading RBI total to 20. Not only that, but Goldschmidt's five steals ranks seventh in the NL (he hasn't yet been caught). He's slashing .338/.446/.584. What else can we tell you that you don't already know? Dude's a hoss.
Apr 30 - 12:33 AM

Paul Goldschmidt notched his second consecutive three-hit game, going 3-for-5 with two doubles and three RBI in a win over the Rockies on Tuesday.

Goldschmidt knocked in the Diamondbacks' first run in the first inning with a single and came around to score on Mark Trumbo's triple. In the eighth, he capped a three-run inning with a two-run double. Goldschmidt, as expected, has been deadly at the dish, batting .315/.425/.575 with five home runs and 19 RBI. The 2013 runner-up in NL MVP balloting, Goldschmidt could be on his way to another MVP-caliber season.
Apr 29 - 12:58 AM

Paul Goldschmidt went 0-for-4 in Saturday's loss to the Pirates.

Even Earth's mightiest heroes sometimes flail in futility against A.J. Burnett. That was the case with Goldschmidt, who came into the game slashing .298/.420/.596, with five home runs, 16 RBI and 11 runs scored. None of that mattered on Saturday. When you see guys like Goldschmidt or Mike Trout take the collar, your best response is to shrug and wait for the day. If he stays healthy (he played in just 109 games in 2014), he's on his way to a monster season.
Apr 25 - 11:33 PM

Paul Goldschmidt hit a two-run homer against the Giants on Sunday.

Goldschmidt smacked the first inning shot off of Giants starter Tim Hudson. The first baseman would finish the game 1-for-3 with two runs scored and two RBI. Goldschmidt's numbers are Mike Trout-esque to this point. He's hit five home runs, knocked in 15 and is slashing .313/.421/.667. If Goldschmidt stays healthy (he played in just 109 games in 2014), he should post monster numbers.
Apr 19 - 7:41 PM

Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in Wednesday's 3-2 setback versus the Padres.

Goldie got to Brandon Morrow in the first inning, but Arizona did precisely zero offensively from there on out. Goldschmidt is raking early, boasting a .344/.447/.656 slash line with three round-trippers and nine runs cashed in.
