Paul Goldschmidt’s two home runs led the Arizona Diamondbacks in a 9-2 victory over the Miami Marlins on Friday night, the first game in a three-game series in Miami.
The two-homer game is Goldschmidt’s second multi-home run game in his young career, the first occurring on May 18, 2012 against the Los Angeles Dodgers. He would finish the game with a career high 4 hits and 4 RBI, along with 4 runs scored.
Goldschmidt is now hitting .338/.421/.656 with 12 home runs and 35 RBI in 42 games for the 24-18 Diamondbacks. The Arizona first baseman has had a torrid month of May, hitting .449 with 7 home runs and 17 RBI.
The Diamondbacks have now won three in a row and seven out of their last ten games. Arizona sits second in the NL West standings with a solid record of 24-18, half a game back of the division leading San Francisco Giants.
