During Goldie's seven-game hitting streak, he's logged five multi-hit games. All of those games have been played in July, giving the stud first baseman a 13-for-25 (.520) start to the month. Overall, he's batting .313 and is on pace for 28 homers and 105 RBI.
Jul 8 - 12:45 AM

Goldschmidt finished up a strong week by hitting his 16th home run of the season off Alex Wood. His two runs batted in gives him 58 RBI for the year, third-most in the National League. The first baseman was 11-for-22 (.500) with four doubles, a triple, the homer, five runs scored and five RBI in the past week as he's enjoyed a good start to July.
Jul 6 - 4:43 PM

Paul Goldschmidt walked, doubled, tripled, and drove in two runs in Thursday's win over the Pirates.

Make that back-to-back-to-back multi-hit games for Goldy. The first baseman drove in a pair of runs as part of a seven-run ninth inning in Pittsburgh. Goldschmidt is impressively slashing .308/.398/.545 with 15 home runs, 55 RBI, and eight stolen bases on the season.
Jul 3 - 10:27 PM

Goldschmidt was the only one in the Arizona lineup able to muster anything off of Charlie Morton and the Pirates' bullpen. Quietly, the first baseman is having another quality season, slashing .305/.395/.536 with 15 home runs, 53 RBI, and eight stolen bases.
Jul 2 - 10:26 PM

Paul Goldschmidt finished 2-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base in Tuesday's loss against the Pirates.

Goldschmidt singled and stole second base in the fifth inning, scoring on a Miguel Montero single. The first baseman struggled through the end of June, going just 1-for-19 in the final seven games of the month, so it's good to see him start off July with a good evening. Goldschmidt is batting .300/.391/.530 overall on the year.
Jul 1 - 9:51 PM

Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk, a steal and two runs scored as the Diamondbacks beat the Giants 4-1 on Friday.

A rather disappointing game for Goldschmidt, considering that he entered with seven homers and a 1.994 OPS in 28 plate appearances against Tim Lincecum. Both hits and the walk did come off Lincecum, so he upped his average versus the former Cy Young Award winner from .542 to .577.
Jun 21 - 12:56 AM

Paul Goldschmidt went 1-for-3 with a home run and two runs scored in a win over the Dodgers on Sunday.

Goldschmidt has a nine-game hitting streak with four homers and seven RBI in that span. Overall, the first baseman is batting .309/.374/.568. He remains among the National League leaders in nearly every offensive category, and it's not too early (OK, maybe it's too early) to start talking about him as the NL MVP.
Jun 15 - 9:17 PM

Paul Goldschmidt doubled and launched a solo homer in Tuesday's win over the Astros.

He also drew a walk and scored a pair of runs, reaching base in three of four trips to the plate. Goldschmidt even swiped his fifth base of the season to put a cherry on top. The first baseman has been a fantasy monster again in 2014, batting .309/.374/.556 with 13 homers and 48 RBI to go along with his five thefts.
Jun 10 - 7:50 PM

Goldschmidt hit a mammoth shot deep to center off Braves reliever David Hale in the seventh inning, giving him 12 home runs on the year. The stolen base was his fourth. The first baseman has a .303/.363/.535 slash line and ranks among the league leaders in most every offensive category in what's turning out to be another monster year.
Jun 8 - 10:38 PM

Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in Thursday's win over the Rockies.

Goldschmidt hit home run number 11 in the fifth inning off of Juan Nicasio. The first baseman, who was the runner up in NL MVP balloting last season, is having another fine season, slashing .307/.362/.537 with 44 RBI.

Jun 3 - 4:56 PM

Paul Goldschmidt had the Diamondbacks' lone hit, a double, in Tuesday's loss to the Cardinals.

Goldschmidt and his Diamondbacks teammates were rendered absolutely useless by Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright. Goldschmidt hit a double with two outs in the fourth inning, and Wainwright retired the next 16 batters to finish the gem. The double was Goldschmidt's 19th of the season as he's in the midst of another monster offensive season.
May 20 - 11:04 PM

Paul Goldschmidt had two homers, two doubles and six RBI in the Diamondbacks' 18-7 demolition of the Dodgers on Saturday.

Tony La Russa's impact is already being felt, what with the Diamondbacks using their lefty specialist to get two outs in a 14-7 game. This one got so bad in the ninth that Drew Butera pitched... again. For a third time this season. He's practically Brooks Kieschnick now, minus the offense. Goldschmidt's second homer came off the catcher and gave him nine homers this year. It's his first career six-RBI game. He's the first player since Josh Willingham in 2009 to finish a game with five runs scored and five RBI. He joins Charlie Blackmon, Ryan Braun and Corey Dickerson as the only players this year to amass 12 total bases in a game.
