Goldschmidt gets back on track, breaks Diamondbacks record
It was a record-breaking outing for Arizona Diamondbacks slugger Paul Goldschmidt in MLB action on Wednesday.
Goldschmidt recorded his 12th career four-hit game, passing Luis Gonzalez for most in franchise history in Arizona's 5-4 walk-off loss to the San Francisco Giants.
An annual National League (NL) MVP contender, Goldschmidt got off to a woeful start this season, batting under .200 late in May. But the three-time Gold Glove and Silver Slugger Award winner has collected seven hits in his last two games, raising his average to .233.
Goldschmidt, 30, batted .297 in April, but struggled in May, hitting just .144. The five-time All-Star has picked up the pace in June, collecting 10 hits through six games.
Diamondbacks fans will hope Goldschmidt's form is here to stay as they try to jockey for position in the NL West.
