Goldschmidt went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 19-2 loss to the Rockies. Goldschmidt staked the Diamondbacks to an early lead with his first-inning solo shot -- his 21st of the season -- but that was just about the only highlight of the night for Arizona, which saw its nine-game winning streak over Colorado come to a screeching halt. With the Rockies racing to a 17-run lead after four innings, Goldschmidt checked out of the game in the bottom of the fifth, with Alex Avila and Daniel Descalso finishing out the game at first base.
Goldschmidt went 2-for-3 with a home run, walk, three RBI and two runs Saturday in the Diamondbacks' 20-5 win over the Padres. Goldschmidt blasted one of five home runs on the night for Arizona, which set a single-game franchise scoring record in the rout. Arizona used a well-balanced attack to dispatch the Padres, as Goldschmidt's three RBI matched three other players for the team lead. The first baseman's slow start through the first two months of the season now looks to be a distant memory; he's slashing an incredible .376/.471/.752 with 13 home runs, 32 RBI and 29 runs over his last 34 games, though he hasn't provided any steals over that stretch.
Goldschmidt went 2-for-4 with a three-run homer in Tuesday's win over the Cardinals. Goldschmidt tagged starter Jack Flaherty for a three-run shot -- his 19th homer of the year -- in the fifth inning to put the Diamondbacks up by two. It was Goldschmidt's second home run in three games, and the first baseman has now brought his slash line to .277/.385/.538 on the season. At the end of May, Goldschmidt was hitting .209/.326/.393 with seven home runs, so he's made remarkable strides to bring himself back to form. He's now tied with Milwaukee's Jesus Aguilar for most home runs among MLB first basemen.
Goldschmidt went 1-for-3 with two walks and a two-run home run Sunday against the Giants. Goldschmidt took Pierce Johnson deep in the seventh inning to record his 18th home run of the season. He's in the midst of a small slump across his last 10 games -- he's gone 10-for-39 -- but has remained productive, recording two home runs, six runs scored and five RBI. After much consternation due to his early-season struggles at the dish, Goldschmidt is returning to his baselines in slugging percentage and OPS thanks to a scorching June at the plate.
Goldschmidt went 3-for-5 with a run and an RBI in Thursday's win against the Marlins. Thursday marked Goldschmidt's first multi-hit effort since June 17 -- a span of eight games. Goldschmidt collected two hits and an RBI in the first two innings before rounding things off with a double in the fifth. He has clearly cooled off since his major power surge earlier in the month, but Thursday's strong outing is a positive development regardless.
