Wed Aug 1607:081B Paul Goldschmidt and RF J.D
1B Paul Goldschmidt and RF J.D. Martinez are candidates to serve as DH in the D-backs' two-game series at Houston when the teams switch venues Wednesday. "I like the idea of giving Paul Goldschmidt a half-day off," manager Torey Lovullo said. "It makes the most sense for me. To get Paul off his feet makes a lot of sense to me. I also am thinking about it with J.D." The D-backs also play a three-game interleague series in Minnesota this weekend and finish the regular season with three games in Kansas City.

Sat Aug 512:10MLB roundup: Dodgers blank Mets in Darvish debut
NEW YORK -- Yu Darvish threw seven scoreless innings in his first start for Los Angeles and Chase Utley continued to torment the New York Mets by hitting a two-run homer in the seventh inning of the Dodgers' 6-0 win on Friday at Citi Field.The scorching Dodgers won for the 42nd time in their last 49 games dating back to June 7. The Mets lost for the fifth time in six games.Darvish, who was acquired from the Texas Rangers in exchange for three prospects seconds before the trade deadline Monday, allowed just three hits and one walk while striking out 10. The win was the first since June 12 for Darvish, who was 0-5 with a 5.81 ERA in his final eight starts for the Rangers.Darvish received the only support he'd need when Chris Taylor homered leading off the first against Mets right-hander Jacob deGrom (12-5). Yasiel Puig homered in the second and Justin Turner hit into a run-scoring play in the fifth.Tigers 5, Orioles 2BALTIMORE -- Justin Upton hit a grand slam off Mychal Givens in the top... [More]

1B Paul Goldschmidt went 3-for-4 with a triple and two RBIs, leading the Diamondbacks to a 2-1 victory against San Francisco on Friday night at AT&T Park. "Three hits, two RBIs," Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said. "He's the right guy in the right spot. "Every hitter, every player looks for runs like that. He's locked in doing his job. Without him, we don't win this game." Goldschmidt hit a career-high three home runs and drove in a career-high matching six runs Thursday night in a 10-8 victory against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field, a marathon, back-and-forth game with multiple rain delays. You couldn't have blamed Goldschmidt if he had a letdown against the Giants. But that's an option he refused to consider. Goldschmidt said facing Giants ace Madison Bumgarner helped him and his teammates stay focused. "We were facing Bumgarner, one of the best pitchers in the game," Goldschmidt said. "It's probably a game you could have that letdown game, but there was a lot of focus I saw before the game and during the game as well."

1B Paul Goldschmidt didn't expect to finish Thursday's 10-8 victory over the Chicago Cubs with a couple career milestones. But after his 12th multi-homer performance of his career and first three-homer game while matching a career best with six RBIs, that's exactly what he ended up with. Goldschmidt also set a career best with four runs scored when he entered the game with only one home run at Wrigley Field in 64 career at-bats. "He had one of those special days you dream about," Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said. "The timing couldn't have been any better. It was a great moment for him and a great win for this team."

1B Paul Goldschmidt is experiencing something of a falloff offensively in July following a standout month of June. Goldschmidt has two homers, nine RBIs and 26 strikeouts in July after having seven homers and 27 RBIs in June. Goldschmidt responded by going 2-for-2 with two doubles and three runs scored. "You're watching him get back to doing what he's done much of the year with his approach -- doubling the other way with a lot of force on the ball. When he does that, you know he's in a good hitting position."

Wed Jul 1921:23New D-backs slugger Martinez a stranger in strange land
CINCINNATI -- J.D. Martinez walked into the Arizona Diamondbacks' clubhouse at Great American Ball Park on Wednesday afternoon and didn't know anyone, an odd occurrence for someone who has played in the major leagues for seven years, and for teams in both leagues.But, aside from left-handed starter Robbie Ray, with whom he played for one season in Detroit, Martinez was in a completely foreign environment."It'll take me a couple days and settle in," Martinez said, sitting in the visitors' dugout wearing his new D-backs warmup gear. "I look at these colors and it doesn't feel right. But, it's a blessing to be here. It's a chance to go to the playoffs, man. Some people go their whole career and never get that chance."Martinez, however, got off to a rough start with the Diamondbacks, leaving the Wednesday game against the Cincinnati Reds in the fourth inning with a contusion after being hit on the left hand by a pitch. X-rays were negative and he is officially listed as day-to-day.Martinez... [More]
Wed Jul 1920:17Martinez: Diamondbacks colors don't feel right
CINCINNATI -- J.D. Martinez walked into the Arizona Diamondbacks' clubhouse at Great American Ball Park on Wednesday afternoon and didn't know anyone, an odd occurrence for someone who has played in the major leagues for seven years, and for teams in both leagues. But, aside from left-handed starter Robbie Ray with whom he played for one season in Detroit, Martinez was in a completely foreign environment."It'll take me a couple days and settle in," Martinez said, sitting in the visitors' dugout wearing his new D-backs warmup gear. "I look at these colors and it doesn't feel right. But, it's a blessing to be here. It's a chance to go to the playoffs, man. Some people go their whole career and never get that chance."Martinez, who will wear uniform No. 28, batted .305 with 13 doubles, 16 home runs, and 39 RBIs in 57 games this season. Martinez was acquired from the Tigers on Tuesday night in exchange for minor league infield prospects Dawel Lugo, Sergio Alcantara and Jose King.Martinez be... [More]

1B Paul Goldschmidt's production was a big plus during a recent run of 13 wins in 15 games. But when he went cold on the Diamondbacks' 10-game homestand that ends Sunday, so did his team. Since taking a day off Monday against the Phillies, Goldschmidt is 2-for-18 with seven strikeouts and has looked to be susceptible to sliders and other breaking pitches down and away. Overall on the homestand, Goldschmidt is 5-for-28 with one homer, two RBIS, five walks and eight strikeouts. But his triple in the fourth Saturday keyed a two-run inning against the Rockies, and the Diamondbacks went on to win 6-2 and halt their three-game losing streak.

The D-backs are in a stretch of 16 games in 17 days that includes consecutive three-game series against St. Louis and fellow NL West contenders Colorado and the Dodgers beginning Tuesday. "I felt it made a lot of sense to get him off his feet and give him a good push for some important series that are coming up," manager Torey Lovullo said. Goldschmidt entered the day with a major league-high 65 RBIs, three more than teammate and No. 2 3B Jake Lamb.
Sat Jun 2404:381B Paul Goldschmidt continues to help all-star candidacy
