Goldschmidt went 1-for-3 with two walks, a solo home run and two additional runs scored in Saturday's 7-2 win over the Pirates. His blistering June continues -- Goldy has 17 homers on the year but 10 of them have come this month, including five in the last nine games, and his .393 batting average (33-for-85) on the month isn't too shabby either. Fantasy GMs who picked the first baseman up at a discount after his poor start are already reaping the rewards.
Goldschmidt went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer and two walks in Tuesday's loss to the Angels. Goldschmidt tagged Angels' closer Blake Parker for a two-run homer -- his 16th of the year -- in the ninth inning to bring the Diamondbacks within one run. He has been on fire of late, hitting .423 with nine homers and 20 RBI in June. Despite the early struggles in the year, Goldschmidt leads all first basemen in runs scored (51) and is tied for second at the position in home runs (16) this season.
Goldschmidt went 3-for-5 with a solo home run, two runs and two RBI to help the Diamondbacks to a 7-3 win over the Mets on Friday. Pretty much no one is as hot as Goldschmidt these days, as the veteran first baseman has broken out of his early season slump in resounding fashion by posting a mind-boggling .456/.530/.965 slash line with six home runs over his 57 June at-bats. His .894 OPS on the season is inching much closer to his career mark of .928, and Goldschmidt is putting whatever lingering concerns may have existed regarding his slow start firmly to rest with his red-hot hitting.
Goldschmidt went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Thursday against the Mets. Goldschmidt struck out three times but those struggles were erased by his 13th home run of the season. The homer was notable because it was only his third of the season at home, and he entered Thursday's game slugging just .280 at Chase Field in 118 at-bats. He now has five home runs in his past 10 games, though four of them came at Coors Field.
Goldschmidt went 2-for-5 with two walks and two runs Tuesday in the Diamondbacks' 13-8 win over the Pirates. With six multi-hit outings in his past seven starts, Goldschmidt's batting average has climbed 48 points to a palatable .258. That's still well below his marks from each of the past six seasons, but the recent form he has shown at the plate offers optimism that more positive regression in the category could be coming for the first baseman. With several of the Arizona bats around him in the order also heating up, Goldschmidt has also collected 11 RBI and has scored 11 times over that seven-game stretch.
