Diamondbacks’ Goldschmidt continues to put on clinic at Miller Park

Paul Goldschmidt is a household name in Phoenix, and he should be one in Milwaukee, too.

But while he’s praised in one city, he’s the boogeyman in the other.

Goldschmidt and the Diamondbacks won the series against the Brewers 2-1 at Miller Park over the weekend.

He hit three doubles and scored twice in Friday’s 7-5 win.

He then hit two home runs in back-to-back innings with four RBI in Saturday’s 7-3 drubbing. In doing so, he improved his batting average at Miller Park to .489 in 11 games.

In Sunday’s 17-inning loss, Goldschmidt homered again (his 15th of the year) and reached base safely seven times, a franchise record.

He also became the first player in history to have three hits and three intentional walks (with another added, an untinentional) in one game.

Goldschmidt is now 26-for-51 (.510) with seven home runs, 17 RBI and nine doubles in 12 games at Miller Park.

At this point, the Brewers get it.

In fact, one web-savvy Goldschmidt fan even changed the Brewers’ Wikipedia page to reflect his domination:

When he drives in at least one run, the Diamondbacks usually win the game — they’re 14-7 when Goldschmidt orchestrates a score.

But it’s not just the numbers — it’s how he hits. Teammate Archie Bradley told MLB.com’s Steve Gilbert, “jaws are dropped,” in the dugout when Goldschmidt hits.

Mark Trumbo told Gilbert that Goldschmidt “pretty much single-handedly won the game by himself,” in reference to Saturday’s homers — one of which traveled well over 400 feet, past the wall in dead center field and was stopped only by the scoreboard.

Which is ironic, because Goldschmidt and the scoreboard seem to get along pretty well most of the time.
